Dr. Gary S.  Sayler简介:

Dr. Sayler is the Beaman Distinguished Professor in the Department  of Microbiology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of  Tennessee, Knoxville; director of the University of Tennessee-Oak Ridge National  Laboratory Joint Institute for Biological Sciences; adjunct professor at Gwangju  Institute for Science and Technology, South Korea; and Honorary Professor at  East China University, Shanghai. He is the founding Director (1986) of the  University of Tennessee Center for Environmental Biotechnology. His research  interests include microbiology, toxicology, and molecular biology of  biodegradation, of toxic pollutants such as PCB and PAH. He pioneered the  development of environmental molecular diagnostics including the extraction and  analysis of nucleic acids from the environment and wastes, environmental gene  probe analysis, bioluminescent bioreporter/sensor technology, and conducted the  first field release of a genetically-engineered microorganism for remediation  process monitoring and control. Over his career, Dr. Sayler has built and  directed programs of approximately $100 million in environmental research,  edited five books, and contributed 400 publications and 500 invited  presentations. He holds 16 patents on environmental gene probing, genetic  engineering for bioremediation, biosensor technology, and environmental gene  expression. He received the NIEHS’ Research Career Development Award  (1980-1985); was named a Top 100 Innovator in Science by Science Digest (1985);  received the American Society for Microbiology, Procter and Gamble Award for  Environmental Microbiology (1994), the Distinguished Alumni Award of the  University of Idaho (1995), the DOW Chemical Foundation SPHERE Award  (1998-2000), as well as the Chancellor’s Research Scholar Award and the Arts and  Sciences Senior Researcher award from the University of Tennessee . He was  elected to the American Academy of Microbiology in 1991 and elected AAAS Fellow  in 2012. Dr. Sayler has served on numerous of councils and committees for the  National Research Council, DOE, EPA, NIEHS, NSF, NASA, and WERF. He was a member  of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Science Advisory Board, and Chair  of the Board of Scientific Counselors for EPA’s Office of Research and  Development, and is a past member of the DOE/OS Biological and Environmental  Research Advisory Committee. Dr. Sayler is a member of the Science Advisory  Board for the Strategic Environmental Research Defense Program, is a member of  five professional societies, currently serves on five editorial boards and is  associate editor of the ACS journal Environmental Science and Technology. Dr.  Sayler has directed graduate research of approximately 50 doctoral and 15  master’s students in microbiology, ecology and evolutionary biology and  engineering. He is President of 490 BIOTech, a bioluminescent imaging start-up  company.


Dr. Frank Löffler简介:

Dr. Löffler received his BS degree in  Biology/Agricultural Sciences and the MASc in Microbiology both from the  University of Hohenheim in Germany. He performed his doctoral work in the  department of Technical Biochemistry at the Technical University  Hamburg-Harburg, Germany. The same year, he was awarded a Feodor-Lynen  fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt foundation, and joined the Center for  Microbial Ecology at Michigan State University. From 1999 to 2010, he was  faculty holding the Carlton Wilder Professorship in the Schools of Civil and  Environmental Engineering and of Biology at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  Since 2010, Dr. Löffler is a Governor’s Chair at the University of Tennessee  (UT) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) with appointments in UT’s  Department of Microbiology, the Department of Civil and Environmental  Engineering, and ORNL’s Biosciences Division. Discoveries in the Löffler lab  have advanced understanding of the diversity and ecophysiology of microorganisms  controlling environmentally relevant processes and have contributed quantitative  tools for monitoring the presence and activity of microbes involved in  bioremediation, nutrient cycling, and greenhouse gas emissions. He has 2 patents  and engages in transitioning research findings to bioremediation applications.  Dr. Löffler has contributed 120 peer-reviewed publications, more than 350  abstracts, and several book chapters.
