Mats Blennow is a senior consultant at Karolinska University Hospital Stockholm, Sweden. He is also professor in Perinatal Neurosciences at Karolinska Institutet, where he is head of department for Clinical Sciences, Intervention and Technology. Mats Blennow´s research focuses on consequencies for the newborn brain in diseases such as extreme preterm birth and Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy following birth asphyxia. For this purpose he has published scientific papers on conventional and advanced MR-imaging, cranial ultrasonography and EEG.


Selma Supek received her BSc, MSc, and Ph.D. degrees in physics at the University of Zagreb. She entered the field of functional brain imaging using MEG during her doctoral research at the Biophysics Group, Los Alamos National Laboratory - LANL (1988-1993). Her research interests include retinotopic and functional organization of the visual cortex, spatio-temporal resolution of MEG, cognitive neurodynamics, translational and educational neuroscience. She founded a series of international graduate courses MIND AND BRAIN, co-founded and co-directed the first interdisciplinary international postgraduate program ''Language Communication and Cognitive Neuroscience'' of the University of Zagreb, and chaired international conference Biomag2010.

Filipe Vaz received his B.A.Sc. in Physics and Chemistry at the University of Minho, Portugal in 1992, where he obtained also his PhD degree in Physics in 2000 and Aggregation in 2012. He supervised/co-supervised 7 Post-Docs, 14 PhD students and 40 MSc. Main research topics concern nanostructured thin films, optical thin film systems and films with Surface Plasmon Resonance behaviour. He participated as coordinator/collaborator in 16 National projects, 10 European projects as National coordinator and 11 European bilateral projects as coordinator.
