Another study has involved the identification, isolation and characterization of specific virus-induced tumour antigens, which were the "finger-prints" left behind in human cancer. Achievements include patents in field; discovery of Respiratory Syncytial Virus in infant deaths in Naples and of tumor liberated protein as a tumor associated antigen, 55 kilodalton protein overexpressed in lung tumors and other epithelial adenocarcinomas.
Ondarza has had extensive experience in teaching biochemistry and molecular biology to students of Biology and Medicine, in the Faculties of Sciences and Medicine of the UNAM. His experience includes directing research theses and providing formal courses for students in both Master's and Doctor's degree programs. For twelve years, Dr. Ondarza was Advisor and General Coordinator of Science Committees within CONACYT (1971-1982) and created five new research centers in several locations in Mexico dedicated to the fields of Ecology, Biomedical Research, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Marine Biology and Oceanography. These centers are CICESE in Ensenada, B.C.; CIBNOR in La Paz, B.C. Sur; CIES in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas; CIQA in Saltillo, Coahuila; and CICY in Merida, Yucatan. Ondarza has been 'Director of Research' on three separate occasions: The first for a period of seven years (1983-1989) as General Director in the Center of Ecological Research in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas. This center is dedicated to studies of the biomedical, socioeconomic and agro-ecological problems of the South East of Mexico. The second activity was in the Foreign Affairs Secretariat of the Government of Mexico, where he acted as General Director of Scientific and Technological Cooperation (1990). Among the various international agreements of collaboration with Europe and Central America, he signed the Agreement between USA and Mexico, in the Campus of the University of California at San Diego in La Jolla. The third experience was as Director of the Center of Research for Infectious Diseases, National Institute of Public Health in Cuernavaca, Morelos, for the three-year period 1990-93. Actually Ondarza's interests are in the biochemistry and molecular biology of human parasites, as well as in cancer cells infected by the Papilloma virus. These studies are all relevant to the concept of the discovery of new compounds which are unique to these parasites and also for the related enzymes that can serve as 'drug targets'. This approach will permit the discovery of specific drugs that do not affect the human host. He has received the following Distinctions.

Prof Yu-Long Yin was born on 23/01/1956 in Hunan, China. Prof. Yin attended Hunan Normal University, Changsha, China, where he obtained a Bachelor degree in Biology in 1978. He attended Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan, China from 1979 to 1982 and Queens University of Belfast, Belfast, UK from 1994 to 1997, from which he obtained his Masters and Doctorate degrees in Animal Nutrition, respectively. Prof. Yin is married to Ms. Lihua Tao and they have a son. Prof. Yin began his academic career as an assistant professor at Institute of Subtropical Agriculture, Changsha in 1986 and rose to the rank of professor in 1994. During this period, Prof. Yin was privileged to work with top scientists in advanced laboratories in the US, Germany and Canada, where he researched extensively into the subject of ideal digestibility and made notable contribution to knowledge on the subject of development and standardization of ideal digestibility in pigs. Back home in China, Prof. Yin has researched extensively and characterized virtually all the common Chinese feed ingredients used for pig feeding for their nutritive value and ileal digestibility contents. This has led to the development of up-to-date feed database used extensively in the Chinese feed industry. Apart from enhancing growth rate and profit margin in the pork industry, the development of the ileal digestibility methods and the use of ileal digestible values in feed formulation has the added advantage of reducing nitrogen and phosphorus emission to the environment, when used for feed formulation. Prof. Yin has won many international and national awards amongst which are the prestigious German Max-planck Gesellschaft Scholarship, 1985 and 1995, National Science and Technology Progress Prize of China in 1996, 1997 and 2008 amongst others. He has published a total of 364 scientific papers (131 papers in English and in Chinese), which have greatly advanced the field of animal nutrition worldwide.

Dr Martins completed his undergraduate Science degree at the University of Western Australia in 1984, then completing a MSc in Clinical Biochemistry in 1986. In 1987 he commenced a Ph D studying the role of high density lipoprotein (HDL) in diabetes (Hackett Scholarship). The publications between 1988-2000 have shown that he has made a valuable and solid contribution to the field of atherosclerosis and heart disease. His work has concentrated on understanding the role of dietary cholesterol rich particles and the subsequent clearance and metabolism from the blood plasma and their potential risk for the development of heart disease. These research studies have shown that the type of dietary fat and increased consumption are important risk factors for heart disease.
