White House Scientific Advisor
Professor of Molecular Neurobiology, NYU
President of Think Scientific Board
Past President of Society for Neuroscience
Moses V. Chao received his BA degree in biochemistry from Pomona College and his PhD from UCLA in 1980. He carried out postdoctoral research at Columbia University with Richard Axel, before joining the faculty at Cornell Medical School in 1984. In 1998, he moved to NYU School of Medicine, where he is presently Professor of Cell Biology, Physiology & Neuroscience and Psychiatry. His laboratory discovered and defined the genes encoding the NGF receptor. His research interests are to define the mechanisms used by trophic factors to change synaptic plasticity and prevent neurodegenerative diseases, such as Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. He has served as Senior Editor for the Journal of Neuroscience for eleven years and also as an editor for Developmental Neurobiology and Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience. He has also been a member of the Scientific Advisory Boards for the Simons Foundation, the Glaucoma Research Foundation, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. He has served as Chair of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, Board of Scientific Counselors for NICHD, the New York State Spinal Cord Research Injury Board and the European Brain Research Foundation. He was named a Fellow of the AAAS in 2007 and was a recipient of a Zenith Award from the Alzheimer’s Association; the Jacob Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award; and a Guggenheim Fellowship. In 2012, Chao was elected President of the Society for Neuroscience, which represents a nonprofit organization of 42,000 scientists and physicians who study the brain and nervous system.

Neuropsychological Diagnosis and Rehabilitation
Dr Jaime Kulisevsky is Director of the Movement Disorders Unit at Sant Pau Hospital, Associate Professor at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and Coordinator of the postgraduate master degree in Neuropsychological Diagnosis and Rehabilitation. He has been engaged in neurological research for several years, has been recipient of several public research grants, and is currently Principal Investigator of Area II (Parkinson’s Disease) at the Biomedical Network Research Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases (CIBERNED-Spain). He is an active member of the international Movement Disorder Society (MDS), where he presently pertains to the International Task Force for Developing Rating Scales for Parkinson’s disease, the Awards and the Web-Site committees. He acts as a reviewer on various scientific journals and is editor of the Movement Disorders section of the Journal ‘Frontiers in Neurology’ as well as being on the editorial board of Neurologia (the official journal of the Spanish Neurological Society) and Revista de Neurología. Dr Kulisevsky has published two sets of clinical guidelines on the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and more than 130 other papers in peer-reviewed journals, and he is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences and meetings. A particular research interest has been the cognitive and behavioural consequences of basal ganglia dysfunction and the impact of antiparkinsonian treatment on cognition in Parkinson’s disease. On 2008 was appointed Director of the Research Institute at the Hospital de la Santa Creu I Sant Pau (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona).

Jean-Christophe Corvol (JCC) is assistant professor in neuro-pharmacology at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital. He has an MD in Neurology (2003), a PhD in neurosciences (2005) and he did a post-doc in the field of trancriptomic biomarkers (2006-2007, Molecular Neurogenetic Laboratory, UCSF, San Francisco). Since 2008, JCC heads the Neurosciences Clinical Research Center at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital (APHP, INSERM, CIC-9503) and he is a principal investigator in the research team of Alexis Brice (CR-ICM).
JCC is a member of the French Society of Pharmacology, the French Society of Neurology, and the Movement Disorder Society. He is member of the scientific board of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology, the French Association for Parkinson’s Disease, and the French Foundation for Brain Research.
His research is focused on drug development, biomarkers and pharmacogenetics of Parkinson’s disease. He has published more than 40 papers in international journals.
Fellow NYU School of Medicine
Ph.D. in Cancer Biology and Biotherapy
NYU Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) Career development award
American-Italian Cancer Foundation (AICF) Post-doctoral research fellowship
Dr. Boccalatte was trained in Molecular Oncology and Clinical Biochemistry the Department of Pathology at the University of Turin, Italy. During his undergraduate studies and residency he identified novel markers involved in lymphoma cells resistance to chemotherapy. He then moved to San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, Italy, where he got a Ph.D. in Cancer Biology and Biotherapy. During his training in Milan, he discovered new epigenetic regulators of hematopoietic stem cells. He also characterize epigenetic factors that contribute to leukemia development and maintenance. He is currently a fellow at NYU School of Medicine, where he studies pediatric leukemias, with a particular focus on cases that do not respond to standard chemotherapy, in order to identify patients that could benefit from new experimental therapies.
Assistant Professor NYU, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences
Ph.D. in Geometric Measure Theory and PDEs.
Dr. Antonio De Rosa got a Master degree in Mathematics at the University of Naples Federico II (2014) and a Master degree in Partial Differential Equations and Scientific Programming at the University Paris-Sud (2014), where he was awarded the Excellence Fellowship of the Fondation mathematique Jacques Hadamard (FMJH). Then he moved to the University of Zurich, where he got a Ph.D in Geometric measure theory and PDEs and was awarded a Distinction for his groundbreaking results. He is currently an Assistant Professor at NYU, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
He has been awarded the GRC Grant from the University of Zurich for international conference organization and he is an organizer of an American Mathematical Society Sectional Meeting at the University of Hawaii Manoa. His domains of expertise are Geometric Measure Theory, Calculus of Variations, Optimal Transport, PDEs and Differential geometry. Among his most important contributions, he has provided a deeper understanding of anisotropic energies, proving open questions related to the rectifiability of varifolds and to the solution of the anisotropic Plateau problem. He has proved stability results in optimal branched transport and quantitative stability estimates for nearly umbilical and quasi Einstein hypersurfaces.
