Ulrich Schaible is Professor of Immunology at London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, UK. After graduating from Freiburg University, he obtained his PhD working with Marcus Simon at the Max-Planck-Institute of Immunobiology, Freiburg. After a postdoc with David Russell at Washington University, St. Louis, USA, he joined the department of Stefan Kaufmann at the Max-Planck-Institute of Infection Biology, Berlin. He combines immunology and cellular microbiology to study host-pathogen-interactions in tuberculosis. He has authored 86 articles and received the Royal Society Wolfsohn Research Merit Award, the GlaxoSmithKline-Foundation for Clinical-Research-Award and the Otto-Westphal-Award of the German Society of Immunology.Albert Haas was appointed Professor of Cell Biology at Bonn University in 2001. After graduating from Würzburg University, he obtained his PhD in Microbiology working with Werner Goebel on Listeria pathogenesis. After postdoctoral research in Bill Wickner's lab at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA) and Dartmouth College (Hanover, NH) on yeast cell biology, he returned to Würzburg University to start his independent research which focuses on questions of phagosome biogenesis. He has authored 35 articles and received the Vector-Laboratories Young Investigator Award (American Society for Microbiology), the Butenandt-Habilitation-Award and the Karl-Lohmann-Award, both from the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
