Richard Petty

Professor of Psychology, The Ohio State University
Richard Petty received his B.A. (with high distinction) in government (political science) and psychology from the University of Virginia in 1973, and his Ph.D. in social psychology from Ohio State University in 1977. He began his academic career that same year as Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Missouri. In 1981 he was promoted to Associate Professor, and in 1985 he was named the Frederick A. Middlebush Professor of Psychology at Missouri. After a sabbatical at Yale University in 1986, he returned to Ohio State in 1987 as Professor of Psychology and Director of the Social Psychology Doctoral Program. In 1995, he was visiting Professor of Psychology at Princeton University. In 1998, he was named Distinguished University Professor at Ohio State. From 1998-2002, he served as Chair of the OSU Department of Psychology. He resumed his role as Chair of the Department of Psychology in 2008, and served in this role through 2015.

Petty's research focuses broadly on the situational and individual difference factors responsible for changes in beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors. Much of his current work (and that of the students and colleagues with whom he collaborates) is aimed at examining the implications of the Elaboration Likelihood Model of persuasion for understanding prejudice, consumer choices, political and legal decisions, and health behaviors. Topics of special current interest include: understanding the role of meta-cognitive (e.g., belief confidence) as well as implicit (unconscious) factors in persuasion and resistance to change; the effect of racial and ethnic prejudice, stereotypes, and specific emotions on social judgment and behavior; and investigating how people correct their evaluations for various factors they think may have biased their judgments (such as stereotypes they hold or emotions they are experiencing).

Richard Ramchurn

Assistant researcher, University of Nottingham
Dr Richard Ramchurn is an artist and researcher whose work explores adaptive narratives; he creates stories that can sense and adapt to the viewers’ physiological and emotional state. His film work explores race and technology in the Anthropocene in the forms of science fiction and magical realism.

Ramchurn has been creating films and experiences using Brain Computer Interface technology since 2013. #Scanners, a successfully kick-started project, became an interactive narrative film called The Disadvantages of Time Travel (2014) that viewers controlled via brain data and blinking. His next brain-controlled film, The MOMENT (2018) touring internationally, and online and was covered by international media.

These films were further explored as a multi award-winning research PhD project at the University of Nottingham’s Mixed Reality Lab working with world-class researchers in the field of Human Computer Interaction. His current interactive film Before We Disappear is set in the aftermath of a climate revolution in the near future. It explores the use of computer vision to support non-conscious interaction.

Richard Thompson

Professor of Marine Biology, University of Plymouth
Richard Thompson is a Professor of Marine Biology and Director of the Marine Institute at the University of Plymouth. He has published over 200 scientific papers and is one of the world’s foremost experts on plastic pollution. In 2004, he published the first paper describing the long-term accumulation of microscopic fragments of plastic in the environment, naming them ‘microplastics’. He and his team have been at the forefront of microplastics research and have shown their global distribution, the potential for transfer from the gut to the circulatory system, and their role in the transport of chemical contaminants. This pioneering early work was pivotal in recognition of microplastic contamination in policy, such as Marine Strategy Framework Directive.

Richard has an extensive track record of collaboration across the disciplines, with an emphasis on identifying ways to use plastics more sustainably. His recent work has guided policy on the release of microplastics from cosmetic products and textiles.

His wider research focuses on the ecology of shallow water habitats, including artificial structures. He received the Marsh Award for Marine and Freshwater Conservation in 2017, an OBE for services to marine science in 2018 and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2020. His team at the Marine Litter Research Unit won the NERC Impact Award (2018) and based on their work the University of Plymouth received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in 2020.

Fertility preservation, stem cell research, gametogenesis and embryology are my main interests, since the existence of stem cells with germline potential might be the key for infertility treatments and a source for fertility restoration.

I hold a master’s degree in biological engineering from Instituto Superior Técnico (Lisbon, Portugal).

Ritu Aneja

Professor of Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences, Associate Dean of Research and Innovation in the School of Health Professions, University of Alabama at Birmingham
Ritu Aneja, PhD is a Professor in the Department of Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences and Associate Dean for Research and Innovation in the School of Health Professions. She is a basic and translational scientist who conducts a broad spectrum of research in the areas of breast cancer health disparities, diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive biomarkers, and novel chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic strategies, using integrative multi-omic and machine-learning based approaches. Her lab is investigating the socio-biological mechanisms of breast cancer disparities and has been continuously funded since 2007 through K99/R00, U01, R01, R03, and STTR grants from the NIH, as well as other agencies such as the DoD and non-profit foundations, for cancer and racial disparities research. The breadth of her research experiences is well suited for the diverse nature of the CPCTP.

The goal of her research is to understand why survival and treatment outcomes differ between White and Black women, with a focus on triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), an aggressive subtype that disproportionately affects Black women. Her convergence research has led her to assemble teams of researchers and clinicians from multiple life science, clinical science, and social science disciplines to collaboratively address complex medical challenges that are deeply entwined with social structures and existing health inequalities. In this context, Dr. Aneja recognized the imperative need for a global approach to address cancer disparities and founded the International Consortium for Advancing Research on Triple Negative Breast Cancer (ICART) in 2016. ICART is a global platform of research groups from 10 countries across four continents, with the mission of aggregating complementary expertise and resources globally, to advance knowledge on TNBC and reduce breast cancer-related disparities. Today, ICART includes more than 30 hospitals and institutions, including a network of 15 teaching hospitals across Nigeria and Ghana and has so far enabled 9 multi-institutional studies and trained 15 graduate students and 8 junior investigators across the globe, resulting in more than 30 publications.

I am a final year PhD student at the University of Sydney, looking at the role digital health technologies for supporting patients with atrial fibrillation and managing their risk factors. I have completed a Bachelor of Science (Biomedical Sciences) at the University of Queensland in 2018. I commenced my PhD in Medicine and Heath in 2020 and am due to submit my thesis early next year.
