Selim Kermasha Professor, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Dr. Selim Kermasha is a professor at McGill University, Montreal, Canada, with a D.Sc. in enzymology. He was previously the Chair of the Department of Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry at McGill University. His primary research interest is in the area of enzymology, with special emphasis on food biotechnology. He led several research projects dealing with industrial approaches of national and international importance including the production of novel microbial enzymes and their purification, characterization, immobilization, and biocatalysis, as well as their industrial applications in the production of nutraceuticals and bio-ingredient. Dr. Kermasha has published over 220 refereed research papers and has been invited as a speaker to many scientific conferences, meetings, and industrial presentations. Michael N.A.

Dr. Michael N. A. Eskin, a former Chair and Associate Dean, is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Food and Human Nutritional Sciences in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg Canada. He is recognized internationally for his pioneering research on the physical, chemical and performance properties that led to the successful development of canola oil. For this and later research, he received many prestigious awards including the American Oil Chemists' Society (AOCS) Supelco Research Award, considered the world prize in lipids, and the IFT Lifetime Achievement Award in Memory of Nicolas Appert. He is also the recipient of the Stephen S. Change Award from IFT and AOCS and the Alton Bailey Medal, Herbert J Dutton Award, Timothy Mounts Award, and the A.R. Distinguished Service Award from AOCS and the William J Eva Award from the Canadian Institute of Food Science and Technology. In 2016, he was awarded the Order of Canada ,and in 2022 The Order of Manitoba, for his significant contributions to the success of the Canadian canola oil industry. He has authored and edited 18 books , 65 chapters and over 160 papers
