Gerhard Ecker is the head of the Pharmacoinformatics Initiative at the Department of Medicinal Chemistry, University of Vienna. He studied Pharmacy at the University of Vienna (Ph.D. thesis advisors: W. Fleischhacker and C.R. Noe) and did post-doctoral work with J. Seydel in Borstel (Germany) where he started his SAR and QSAR studies on P-glycoprotein. His main scientific interests are pharmacoinformatic approaches to target drug efflux pumps, in silico screening methods for promiscuous targets, and non-linear methods in drug design.
Peter Chiba is a senior scientist and lecturer at the Medical University of Vienna. He holds a doctorate in Medicine from the University of Vienna and worked at the Universities of Nijmegen (The Netherlands) and South Florida (USA) as a Fulbright scholar and post-doctoral associate. His research focuses on multidrug transport and resistance to drugs in treatment of cancer and microbial disease.
