The advisory committee, whose members are identified among prominent scientific and professional experts in cultural heritage conservation, material science, exploitation and technology transfer, has a fundamental role in maximizing the project impact.



Curtis Frank explores the molecular structure of high polymers and small amphiphilic molecules capable of self-organization through photostationary and transient fluorescence, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, surface plasmon spectroscopy, and optical and atomic force microscopy. He studies polymers, fatty acids, surface coupling agents, dendrimers and liquid crystals at the air/water interface and in constrained geometries on solid substrates; organic/inorganic nanocomposites; and applications of polymers in microelectronics. He is Sr. Professor in Engineering and Professor, by court, of Materials Science and Engineering and of Chemistry at Stanford University.

Alberto Arturo De Tagle studied at the Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany, where he earned a master's degree in analytical chemistry. He returned to Cuba in 1972 and served for the next ten years in Havana as head of inorganic instrumental analysis at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNIC). He earned a Ph.D. in analytical atomic spectroscopy at the TH Merseburg, Germany in 1980. From 1982 until 1990 he directed scientific research in cultural heritage studies and preservation at the National Centre for Conservation, Restoration, and Museology (CENCREM), Havana, Cuba. He lectured as associate professor on colonial architectural decorative paintings at the University of Havana. Since 1991 he has been a visiting Lecturer and since 2007 he has led the course in advanced architecture conservation at the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA. In 1992 he was appointed head of the analytical laboratories at the Winterthur Museum and Gardens in Delaware and adjunct associate professor in the Art Conservation Program at the University of Delaware. From 1995 until 2001 he was Director of the Scientific Program and then Chief Scientist at the Getty Conservation Institute, Los Angeles, USA.  Since 2002 Alberto has worked at the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
