Sabrina Pricl graduated in Chemistry in 1986 at the Science Faculty of the University of Trieste. The same year, she obtained her habilitation for Chemist profession. From 1986 to 1990 she worked as fellowship at the Area Science Park of Trieste and at University of Trieste. From 1990 to February 2002 she was assistant professor at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Trieste. On February 2002 she became associate professor of Chemical Engineering at the same Faculty.
From 1995 to 2000 she was appointed as teacher of Physical and Technological Properties of High Polymers. At the time being, she holds the course of Thermodynamics and Transport Properties, and is a member of the Research Doctorate Council of the University of Padua and Trieste. She has been also involved in teaching in the following courses: Chemistry, chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, Chemical Engineering Principles, and Rheology of Heterogeneous and Homogeneous Systems. She has been and still currently is holding courses and seminars at several Universities and Scientific Institutions on several topics, including biopolymer rheology, thermodynamics and molecular modeling and simulation.

Maurizio Fermeglia is full professor at the Department of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Trieste. From 2006 to 2012 he was the head of the Department of Industrial Engineering & Information Technology, from 2010 to 2012 he served as president of the Research board of the University of Trieste. He was the director of the Ph.D. School of Nanotechnology at the University of Trieste from 2007 to 2013. From 2013 to 2019, he was the Rector of the University of Trieste.
Professor Fermeglia research interests are focused: on multiscale modeling for materials design and life science, applied thermodynamics, process simulation, molecular modeling for nanotechnology and nanomedicine.
Maurizio Fermeglia is IUPAC fellows, member of the AIChE, member of Italian associations GRICU and AIDIC. He received the Italy meets Asia Science Award in 2015. He was scientific consultant of ICS - UNIDO within the Subprogram 'Process Simulation and sustainable development' from 1999 to 2011 and of UNEP for the implementation of PRTR in different countries from 2005 to 2013.
After I graduated in Process and Materials Engineering in 2014 at the University of Trieste with a thesis on the sustainability of batch processes, I further developed this topic during my PhD project which was devoted to the evaluation of the sustainability of chemical processes using a multiscale approach. Using information gathered at the nanoscale (typical of molecular simulations), I employed optimization techniques in order to evaluate the sustainability performance of chemical process design at the macroscale (proper of process simulations). Therefore, my research projects encompass molecular dynamics of materials, Life Cycle Assessment and sustainability of chemical processes.

Suzana Aulic graduated in Medicinal Chemistry in 2010 at the University of Trieste (UniTS). In 2011 she started her PhD in Functional and Structural Genomics working on neurodegenerative diseases (prion disorders and Parkinson’s disease). In 2015 she received her PhD from the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste, where she conducted her research until 2017. In March 2017 she joined MolBNL group at the Department of Engineering and Architecture (DEA), UniTS working on the expression, purification and characterization of protein kinases involved in onco-pathologic processes. Her research activity is also involved in the understanding of molecular mechanism of activation and function of different signaling pathways. In July 2018 she became assistant professor at the same department.
