    I Agnieszka Babczynska, In my research work I concentrate my interests on relations between humans, animals and environment. As an enthusiastic ecophysiologist, in my work I apply widely understood biomarkers, from molecular markers to life history parameters, if they are able to throw a new light on the tolerance, adaptation, plasticity or selection processes of animals in response to external, especially anthropogenic factors. As animal models, I usually use invertebrates, with spiders and insects as my favorites. Equally eagerly I spend my scientific time in the laboratory and in the field.
    I am also an academic teacher but not only. I deeply believe that scientists have to share their knowledge with non-scientists. Therefore, I often organize and take part in popularization of researches among children and adults who are interested in science, environmental protection and nature friendly life. Everybody is welcome to the lectures, workshops, or just walks or trips with entertaining talks of nature.
    Personally, I love own-muscle-strength travelling (by foot, bike, kayak), reading books, playing transverse flute (I’m just learning) and non-scientific admiring of the nature.

As in all Marquis Who’s Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

    Professor Dr. Meissner is a three-time graduate of the Agricultural University of Kraków, from which he holds a Ph.D. in nutritional biochemistry, a Master of Science in environmental physiology, and a Bachelor of Science in agricultural sciences. For more than five decades, he has utilized his educational foundation in his career as a nutritional biochemist and educator. Professor Dr. Meissner has devoted his work to the prevention and intervention of metabolic and medical conditions through standardized bioavailable herbal therapeutic products, non-invasive therapies and functional health foods, with special consideration to environmental and ecological factors. He is noted for his research in all aspects of nutritional biochemistry and manufacturing technology of herbal extracts, as well as herbal extraction technology and application of standardized herbal extracts in dietary and therapeutic practice. His work has led to the development of production lines and a variety of unique proprietary therapeutic and functional products for different companies in Australia and internationally.

    Since 1986, Professor Dr. Meissner has served as the executive director of research and development for TTD International. The company, which is primarily concerned with natural health services and food technology, supports his efforts to create preventive and therapeutic programs for specific groups of people, such as diabetics, athletes, the overweight, those with celiac disease and women with pre- & post-menopausal symptoms. Professor Dr. Meissner has developed and introduced to the international market a variety of novel functional foods, therapeutic preparations, raw standardized active herbal ingredients, and ready-to-use dietary supplements and therapeutics derived through non-chemical extraction of freshly-harvested biomass of organically-cultivated medicinal plants.

    Dr. Iryna Rusanova studied Biochemistry and Master in Biomedical Sciences at the Moscow State University of Medicine (Russia), homologated to the official Spanish university degree in Biochemistry. He then moved to the Republic of Panama where he expanded his curriculum by completing a Postgraduate Degree in Higher Education and a Diploma in Human Genetics. He has ten years of teaching experience at the Specialized University of Las Américas (public university-UDELAS) and private universities (Universidad Latina de Panamá and Columbus University). In 2007 she obtained the title of Regular Professor of Biochemistry by contest and is currently an Ad Honorem Research Professor at UDELAS.

    She has served as Director of the Biomedical Department, Director of the School of Health and coordinator of the Biomedical Engineering Degree in UDELAS. Between 2008 and 2009 she was principal investigator of the FID08-124 project (Determination of haplotypes of the beta cluster in Panamanian pediatric patients with sickle cell anemia), funded by the National Secretariat of Science and Technology, Republic of Panama. At that time, he joined the CTS-101 Research Group: Intercellular Communication, under the direction of Perof. Darío Acuña Castroviejo, where he completed the Official Master’s Degree in Biotechnology and obtained in 2010 the title of Doctor of Biotechnology from the University of Granada, with the qualification of Cum Laude. He participated in the research project “Evaluation of the effects of melatonin and its metabolites on the proliferation and differentiation of neural stem cells at the University of Granada”, under the direction of Prof. Germaine Escames. During his studies he made a stay at the Center for Diagnosis of Molecular Diseases (CEDEM, at the UAM), where he learned the techniques of diagnosis and analysis of mutations of congenital glycosylation defects.

    Between 2010 and 2012 he worked in the Eurístikos Pediatric Research Excellence Group, with a grant from the General University of Granada Foundation – Abbott Laboratories, SA and a research contract under the NUTRIMENTE European Research Project.

    Since 2013 she has been hired as a Senior Technician by the Thematic Network for Cooperative Research on Aging and Fragility (RETICEF) in the CTS-101 Research Group, under the direction of Prof. Darío Acuña, also belonging to said Network. Her current job is determination of chronobiological markers and oxidative and inflammatory stress in normale subjects and patients, with a view to the Network’s aging studies.

    In addition to the published articles, Dr. Rusanova is co-author and co-editor of the book: “Sickle Cell Disease: a new vision for an old problem”. Nova Science Publishers, Inc., 2013, and co-editor of the book: “New Developments in Melatonin Researh.” Nova Science Publishers, Inc., 2013. She is co-author of several communications and in national and international conferences.
