ORGANIZING COMMITTEE MEMBERS

Emilio Bunel received his Ph.D. in chemistry from the California Institute of Technology in 1988. He began his professional career at DuPont Central Research as a member of the Catalysis Group. He was responsible for the discovery and subsequent development of new processes for the synthesis of Nylon intermediates required in the manufacture of Nylon-6,6 and Nylon-6. In 2001, Bunel was hired by Eli Lilly to establish the Catalysis Group within the Discovery Research Organization. This group was responsible for the preparation of organic compounds using transition metal catalyzed reactions. The molecules prepared spanned all the aspects of the pharmaceutical endeavor from early lead optimization to process development. In 2003, he became an associate director at Amgen, Inc. His work included the establishment of the Catalysis Group in support of route selection/process development efforts to manufacture active pharmaceutical ingredients for clinical testing. Most recently, Dr. Bunel was employed as the director of research at Pfizer, Inc., where he directed the Catalysis Group in support of medicinal chemistry and process development. After spending so many years in industry, Dr. Bunel decided to get back to where science is discovered and not just used. At Argonne National Laboratory, with a talented group of scientists and engineers, but with funding shifting to applied science, he is emphasizing the importance of having a strong basic research program as well.

Mark J. Cardillo is the executive director of the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation. Dr. Cardillo received his bachelor of science degree from Stevens Institute of Technology in 1964 and his Ph.D. degree in chemistry from Cornell University in 1970. He was a research associate at Brown University, a CNR research scientist at the University of Genoa, and a postdoctoral research fellow in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1975, Dr. Cardillo joined Bell Laboratories as a member of the technical staff in the Surface Physics Department. He was appointed head of the Chemical Physics Research Department in 1981 and subsequently named head of the Photonics Materials Research Department. Most recently, he held the position of director of Broadband Access Research. Dr. Cardillo is a fellow of the American Physical Society. He has been the Phillips Lecturer at Haverford College and a Langmuir Lecturer of the American Chemical Society. He received the Medard Welch Award of the American Vacuum Society in 1987, the Innovations in Real Materials Award in 1998, and the Pel Associates Award in Applied Polymer Chemistry in 2000.

Miguel Garcia-Garibay has been a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry since 1992. He came to the University of California, Los Angeles after doing postdoctoral research at Columbia University, which followed his Ph.D. studies at the University of British Columbia, in Canada. The earlier portions of Dr. Garcia-Garibay’s education were completed in his native Mexico, at the Universidad Michoacana, where he did research on natural product isolation and characterization. Dr. Garcia-Garibay was promoted to full professor in the year 2000 and he has served as vice chair for education in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry since 2005. Dr. Garcia-Garibay is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of the American Chemical Society and the Journal of Organic Chemistry. He has been a member of the CNSI since 2005. His current research efforts are aimed at the development of artificial molecular machinery in highly organized crystalline
