Title: Assisted reproductive technologies for mammalian farm animals
Dr. Behnam Saremi grew up in northeast Iran (Mashhad) where he received a BSc in agricultural engineering and an MSc in animal nutrition at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. He received his PhD in molecular physiology at the University of Bonn (Germany). Dr. Behnam Saremi worked as a lecturer and researcher in Applied Science University. He worked also as a research associate in National Elite Foundation of Iran. Dr. Behnam Saremi had also enrolled his private businesses including a feed mill and a dairy beef farm. Since January 2013, he is working as manager animal physiology research in Animal Nutrition Research Department in Evonik industries headquarter in Hanau (Germany).
In the last 15 years, his research focus was forage evaluation, protein and fat digestion and metabolism, starch digestion, feed enzymes, yeast, and lactic acid bacteria in ruminants and amino acid metabolism under normal and challenge situations in poultry, swine, and ruminants. Currently he has a focus on functionality of amino acids beyond being building blocks of proteins and he is implementing new techniques such as metabolomics, transcriptomics, etc. into farm animal nutritional concepts.
Dr. Behnam Saremi has published 17 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 2 books, 3 multi-medias, 13 commercial articles, and 91 abstracts in different international conferences.

Max Rubner-Institut (MRI)
Ralf joined the Federal Research Centre for Nutrition, Karlsruhe, Germany in 1990 as a Ph.D. student after gratuating in Chemistry at the University of Stuttgart. In the early stages of his career as Deputy Head of the Centre for Molecular Biology he was mainly engaged in research in respect to genetically modified food and enzymes for food processing, with phytases in the centre of his interests. In 2007 Ralf held a position as a Visiting Professor for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Department of Bioprocess Engineering, Federal University of Paraná, Curitiba, Brazil working on solid state fermentation and fungal enzyme production. In 2008 he returned to Karlsruhe where he became Head of the Department of Food Technology and Bioprocess Engineering of the Max Rubner-Institut (MRI). His research is focused on studying and modelling conventional and new processing technologies, as well as on food nanotechnology, but phytases are still in the focus of his interests. Ralf is a representative of MRI in several international and national asscociations on food technology, food control and food nanotechnology. In 2012 Ralf accepted the position as an Honorary Assistant Professor in the School of Biological Sciences of the University of Hong Kong. His research activities have resulted in approximately 100 original papers in peer-reviewed journals, 35 book chapters and 250 abstracts or short papers in congress proceedings. In addition, Ralf is member of the editorial board of the Journal of the Brazilian Society for Food and Nutrition, the Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology, the Arquivos Brasileiros de Ciências da Saúde, Food Control and ISRN Biotechnology.

Academic Career and Research Areas
Professor Schnieke (b. 1956) has many years of experience in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products in the milk of livestock. Her Chair at TUM conducts research into the application of biotechnology in large animals to address problems in agricultural sciences in general and biomedicines in particular. Her research interests are in the areas of animal stem cells, the genetic modification of mammals for regenerative medicine and the production of animal models of human diseases.
Professor Schnieke studied bioengineering in Hamburg and obtained her D.Phil in Medicine from the University of Edinburgh. After her studies she worked at a number of German and international research institutes (Heinrich-Pette Institute in Hamburg; Whitehead Institute at MIT in Boston, Ludwig Institute in Bern and Colorado State University). Before being appointed professor at TUM she worked at biotechnology company PPL Therapeutics, Edinburgh, first as Head of Molecular Biology and later as Assistant Director of Research.
