Kevin Hallock, Ph.D., is a researcher and instructor in the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the Boston University School of Medicine in Boston, Masschusetts, where he teaches biostatistics, an graduate course on the science of disasters, and co-teaches biophysical chemistry and modeling courses with Dr. Bergethon. His research interests include the impact of antimicrobial peptide on phospholipid bilayers, solid-state NMR and magnetic resonance imaging characterization of crystalline solids, atherosclerotic plaque formation, magnetic resonance microscopy of arthropods, the impact of chronic Hg exposure on aging, and the role cell membrane biophysics play in the fundamental processes of neurophysics. Peter Bergethon, MD is the Head of the Neuroscience Interdisciplinary Modeling and Simulation Center (NIMS Center), the Laboratory for Intelligence Modeling and Neurophysics and a member of the faculty in both the Departments of Anatomy/Neurobiology and Biochemistry at Boston University School of Medicine. His research spirals around a core question: "What is the physical and systemic basis for creativity and intelligent behavior and how could such behavior be practically constructed or reconstructed?" Dr. Bergethon is also an active member of the American Academy of Neurology from which he received the Founder's Award , the Electrochemical, Biophysical, American Chemical Societies, the Society for Neuroscience and the American Society of Biochemistry and Cellular Biology.
