Peter James - Department of Immunotechnology, Lund University, Sweden

Professor of Protein Technology at Lund University and SWEGENE Director of Proteomics.
He graduated from Oxford University and completed his PhD at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich in 1990.
After a two year post-doc in USCF, San Francisco and in ThermoFinnigan, San Jose he returned to the ETH. He moved to take the chair in Proteomics at Lund University in 2001.
He has published over 150 peer reviewed articles and reviews in the field of protein chemistry and proteomics and holds 7 patents in proteomics methodologies.
He is a member of Founding Board of the Human Proteome Organisation – HUPO, and chairman of the Education Committee of the European Proteomics Association – EuPA.
He is on the editorial Boards of the four leading Proteomics journals.
His research field is protein analysis with a focus on protein-protein interaction, membrane proteins and methods development for clinical proteomics.
The main focus currently is on diagnosis and therapy outcome prediction for breast cancer and on defining plasma membrane protein targets for directed antibody therapy.


Reiner Westermeier - SERVA Electrophoresis GmbH

Marketing Scientist at SERVA Electrophoresis GmbH.
He gained his doctorate in 1981 at the Technical University of Munich, Germany;
there he remained engaged in the development of new electrophoresis systems and applications until 1983, a period that also involved several international collaborations and lecturing tours.
From 1984 to 1990 he was electrophoresis products and applications specialist at LKB Instrument GmbH and at Pharmacia Biotech.
He co-founded ETC Elektrophorese-Technik in 1991 for the development of new electrophoresis methods, media, and equipment.
From January 1996 to July 1997 he was manager of scientific support Europe at Pharmacia Biotech in Freiburg, Germany.
He has been at Amersham Pharmacia Biotech, later GE Healthcare since July 1997, and its Senior Scientist for Proteomics since January 2002, giving also lectures, seminars, and courses on various methodologies used in Proteomics on a global basis.
Then he worked as a scientific marketing director at gelcompany, a novel company formed from ETC Elektrophorese-Technik, Fluorotechnics Ltd., and The Gelcompany.
Author of several publications, book chapters, and two books (“Electrophoresis in Practice” and, together with Tom Naven and Hans-Rudolf Hoepker, “Proteomics in Practice”) and co-editor with Rainer Cramer of “Difference Gel Electrophoresis (DIGE) Methods and protocols”.
The professional interests are methodical developments and improvements, as well as application developments and troubleshooting within the area of separation and evaluation techniques used in Proteomics.
