Dr. Ulrich F.J. Mayer is a Chemistry graduate from the Friedrich-Schiller University Jena (Germany). He holds a PhD in Chemistry from Bristol University (UK), where he also conducted postdoctoral research for the Department of Aerospace Engineering and the Ministry of Defence. He was subsequently appointed a JSPS research fellow at Kyoto University (Japan). His scientific interests span organometallic and polymer chemistry, materials science, main group compounds, and catalysis. He has published research papers and reviews in high impact journals, such as the Journal of the American Chemical Society, Angewandte Chemie Int. Ed., and Advanced Functional Materials. Dr. Mayer has written, proofread, and edited papers, reviews, grant applications, theses, and book chapters for scientists in the UK, Germany, Canada, Japan, Singapore, and Brazil. He currently also works as a scientific writer in the Molecular Engineering group at the Cavendish Laboratory (University of Cambridge, UK).


Dr. Rodrigo Proto Siqueira  is a Pharmacy and Biochemistry graduate from the Catholic University of Pelotas (Brazil) and has obtained a PhD in Clinical Medicine from the University of São Paulo (Brazil). He subsequently accepted a postdoctoral placement at Queen Mary University London (UK) working on leukemia and cell therapy. His studies have been published in international journals with high impact factors, e.g. Blood, Stem Cells, and Leukemia Research. His work has won several "Best Scientific Work" awards from the Brazilian Hematology Society. Following his academic career, Dr. Proto Siqueira has worked for four years as a scientific consultant at the Fleury Group, developing genetic tests and new therapeutic approaches to mantle cell lymphomas. He is a member of the Lymphoma Research Foundation, works as a medical business consultant for the Gerson Lehrman Group and is responsible for the implementation of the “Molecular Detection of Pathogens (HPV / HCV) and Mutations (leukemia and coagulation disorders)” program at the Laboratory Antonello in Pelotas.

Dr. Inmaculada Matas Ruiz is a Chemistry graduate from the University of Seville (Spain). After obtaining her PhD in Chemistry from the same University in 2006, she joined the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol (UK) to conduct postdoctoral research in the field of organometallic and polymer chemistry. Upon returning to Spain she has been working at the Chemical Research Institute (CSIC) in Seville as a postdoctoral fellow, where her research involved the design of polar functional group-tolerant catalysts for the copolymerization of ethylene and polar monomers. During her scientific career she has published research papers in high impact journals such as the Journal of the American Chemical Society, Chemistry - A European Journal, Polymer Chemistry, and Organometallics


Dr Monica Carreira Mendez is a Chemistry graduate from the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). She obtained her PhD from the University of Bristol (UK) in inorganic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis, and later moved to the United States to work on coordination and organometallic anticancer compounds as a Research Associate in Brooklyn College (The City University of New York). Her publications during this period include articles in the Journal of the American Chemical SocietyOrganometallics, Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, a book chapter in Topics in Current ChemistryFluorous Chemistry and a patent (to Shell). In 2013, she joined the Royal Society of Chemistry as a Publishing Editor where, for more than two years, she carried out the assessment of articles and production tasks (including editing and proofreading) for their journal portfolio. She is currently living in Spain, working as a freelance scientific editor full time.
