Dr. Shoenfeld is the Incumbent of the Laura Schwarz-Kipp Chair for Research of Autoimmune Diseases in Tel-Aviv University.
His clinical and scientific works focus on autoimmune /rheumatic diseases, and he has published more than 1550 papers in journals such as New England Medical Journal, Nature, Lancet, Blood, FASEB, Circulation, Cancer and others. His articles had over 20,000 citations until 2009. He has authored and edited 25 books, some of which became cornerstones in science and clinical practice, such as "The Mosaic of Autoimmunity", "Infections and Autoimmunity" and the textbook "Autoantibodies" and "Diagnostic criteria of autoimmune diseases", all of which were published by Elsevier and sold by the thousands. He is on the editorial board of 43 journals in the field of rheumatology, and autoimmunity and is the founder and the editor of the IMAJ (Israel Medical Association Journal) the representative journal of science and medicine in the English language in Israel and also is the founder and Editor of the "Autoimmunity Reviews" (Elsevier) (Impact factor 6.2). He has written more than three hundred chapters in books. For the last 20 years Prof. Shoenfeld is the Editor of "Harefuah" - The Israel journal in medicine (Hebrew) and edited the Israel Medical Encyclopedia (10 volumes, 5000 items). He had organized over 20 international congresses in autoimmunity.
Dr. Shoenfeld received in Vienna, Austria, the EULAR prize 2005: "The infectious etiology of anti-phospholipid syndrome". He has received a gold medal from the Slovak Society of Physicians for his contribution to Israel - Slovakia collaboration (March 2006), and is honorary member of the Hungarian Association of Rheumatology. In UC Davis, USA, Dr. Shoenfeld received the Nelson's Prize for Humanity and Science for 2008. In 2009 he was honored as Doctoris Honoris Causa, from Debrecen University (Hungary), and from 2009 he is a honorary member of the Slovenian National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Shoenfeld has educated a long list of students being heads of departments and institutes. Dr. Shoenfeld recently coined the new syndrome Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants, or ASIA.

Dr. Christopher Exley is a Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry at The Birchall Centre, Keele University in Staffordshire, England and Honorary Professor at the University of the Highland and Islands in Scotland. Exley is a biologist (University of Stirling) with a PhD in the Ecotoxicology of Aluminum (University of Stirling). His research career (1984-present) has focused upon an intriguing paradox; 'how the third most abundant element of the Earth's crust (aluminum) is non-essential and largely inimical to life'. Investigating this mystery has required research in myriad fields from the basic inorganic chemistry of the reaction of aluminum and silicon to the potentially complex biological availability of aluminum in humans. Exley is also fascinated by the element silicon in relation to living things which, as the second most abundant element of the Earth's crust, is also almost devoid of biological function. One possible function of silicon is to keep aluminum out of biology (biota) and this area of study forms a large part of Exley's research.
Didier Lambert, President E3M - Didier Lambert, President of E3M (Mythosaccharide Society of Macrophages) and former director of medical and social services, Didier Lambert, has had myofasciitis with macrophages since 1994, a neuromuscular pathology induced by aluminum salts used as adjuvant of Vaccines. His state of health does not allow him to continue his professional activity, he is currently on disability, a situation shared by 78% of the members of the association E3M (Entraide aux Malades of Myofasciite to Macrophages). A long-standing militant, he is now working with the "E3M sentinels" to ensure that the health authorities assume their mission of protecting the population by taking the adverse effects induced by aluminum vaccine into account (without calling into question the very principle of vaccination). Since many alerts have been launched for 20 years by researchers from all countries (French, Canadian, North American, English, Israeli, etc.), requiring two urgent health decisions: to fund research at the right pace (he whole population is concerned), and apply the precautionary principle pending the outcome of this research (with the availability of aluminum-free vaccines, as they exist).
French Association E3M:
The NGO E3M brings together victims of MMS. Its goals are to help the victims, to support scientific research and to be an activist so that aluminum is removed from vaccines.

Doctor Romain Gherardi is the Director of the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm) U955 E10 Unit of the University of Paris and is the head of the Histology-Embryology department of the Henri Mondor Hospital (Creteil) of neuromuscular diseases.
He is a graduate in neurology and pathology, and Professor of Universities - Hospital Practitioner since 1990.
From 1983 to 2010, he wrote 300 research articles, more than 250 of which were published in journals such as the Lancet, New England Journal, Annals of Neurology, Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, and Arthritis and Rheumatology. He has also been invited as a speaker at the CDC of Atlanta, the WHO of Geneva, and in various national or international learned societies of Neurology and Myology.
His research concerns the field of cellular interactions in the normal neuromuscular system and inflammatory or toxic diseases (almitrin-related neuropathy, AZT-induced myopathy or statins, etc.). He is currently working on the bio distribution of cells loaded with nanoparticles, and the pathophysiology of myofasciitis with macrophages.
He is the author, along with Doctor Authier, of "Macrophagic myofasciitis lesions assess long-term persistence of vaccine-derived aluminum hydroxide in muscle" (Brain - 2001). It synthesizes the knowledge on macrophage myofasciitis in this article: "Macrophagic myofasciitis: characterization and pathophysiology". Dr. Gherardi recently wrote a book about his experiences with aluminum and vaccines called, "Toxic Story - Two or three embarrassing truths about vaccines and their adjuvants."
Professor Jerome Authier is a neurologist. He coordinates the Center of Reference of neuromuscular diseases of the Henri Mondor Hospital, Creteil, France. The reference center includes the Neurology Department, the Neurological Functional Exploration Unit, the Neuromuscular Pathology expert center. He teaches at the University Paris Est-Creteil. He has written more than 100 articles in refereed journals. His research interests concern the physiopathology and therapeutics of adult neuromuscular diseases, as well as the cellular and molecular mechanisms of postnatal myogenesis and post-lesion regeneration. Professor Authier is familiar with the clinical aspects of myofasciitis with macrophages. He has worked particularly on cognitive deficits, in connection with PET / CT imaging.
