Dr. Yonghak Seo is currently employed as a Research Specialist in Dr. Heidi Tissenbaum’s Lab at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He is interested in glucose toxicity caused by high glucose diet, which resulted in decreased lifespan, abnormally accumulated glycogen, increased glucose-related metabolic disease, malfunction of mitochondria, and neuronal disorders. Therefore, he primarily focuses on how to prevent cells or worms from being damaged by advanced glycation end products (AGEs) or reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced by damaged mitochondria which are known to be increased during high sugar diet. By looking at glycolysis, glycogen and trehalose synthesis, insulin, and AMPkinase signaling pathway, he is aiming to understand the central role of high carbohydrate diet in metabolic diseases, and how glucose functions in networks of glycogen and neuronal mitochondria dysfunction affecting health span and longevity. Therefore, he hopes this study may be an avenue for combatting high-sugar diet pathology.

Dr. Grace Lindsay is Professor of Medical Surgical Nursing at Umm Al-Qura University, Makkah, KSA. Her career in nursing and midwifery practice spans a period of over 25 years as a clinician, teacher and researcher. During these years she has worked within the higher education and health care sectors, and in partnership medical charities, publishers and research funding bodies. Such experience is reflected in her current internationally relevant healthcare interests.
As a nurse, clinical practice started out in midwifery as an RN in the labor/delivery room, moving on to adult intensive care and latterly cardiac preventive and rehabilitative practices. Over these years of growing experience her work was focused on the domains of nursing education and research. A central interest has been in contributing to the evidence base for understanding patient experiences, patients’ health beliefs/actions and outcomes on health as a result of health-care interventions. These interests became the focus of her doctoral studies in health outcome following cardiac bypass surgery which continues to be an area of interest. Nurse-led initiatives designed to improve the care of cardiac patients evolved from this research and formed the basis for her future research direction and in attracting research grant funding. She has made significant contributions to the nursing and health-care literature through a range of peer reviewed journal and book publications. Findings have been disseminated at numerous international and national conferences, and in peer-reviewed international health-care journals (over 60 publications) and two edited textbooks.
Underlying concepts and capabilities of digital technology relating directly to nursing practice - an emerging research interest: Possibilities and potential of new technologies; Evaluation of the enhancement of nurse-patient interactions and overall efficacy of health-care delivery; Secondary prevention and the effectiveness of rehabilitation for people with coronary heart disease; Health beliefs and ‘Health Locus of Control’ as a measure of behavioral intentions, actions and health outcomes in cardiac clients; Measuring health-care outcomes using and developing measures of wider health indices based on the WHO definition of health and patient/user perspective; Evaluation of expanding and advanced role in various nursing specialist practices; Employing mixed research methodological approaches drawn from both inductive and deductive knowledge generation paradigms.

Dr. Sarwar Hashmi, Ph. D. (University of Maryland, College Park, MD)-1994 currently works in the Developmental Biology Lab, Rutgers Center for Vector Biology, Rutgers University, USA. There are three complementary research activities in his lab that address the overall goal of identifying genetic effects on metabolic traits related to the obesity risk:
1: The Role for KLFs in FA synthesis and β-oxidation: Fat storage is coordinately regulated through signaling networks that integrate biochemical pathways of fat deposition, mobilization and utilization. Excessive storage of fat in the form of triglycerides in adipocytes results in obesity is a growing global health problem leading to increased prevalence of diabetes and cardiovascular disease in the human population. They are particularly interested in the role that Kruppel-like family of transcription factors, KLFs play in the regulation of lipid metabolic enzymes to fat deposition, mobilization and utilization. Recent studies from laboratory have shown that a member of this family, klf-3 is one of the important regulators of two key processes in lipid metabolism; fatty acid ?-oxidation and lipoprotein assembly and transport. Their efforts include investigation of how klf interacts with lipid metabolism regulatory machinery, characterization of specific pathway targets, and genetic manipulation of these targets to better understand the pathology of excess fat accumulation in human. They take advantage of the availability of Caenorhabditis elegans models, its genomic databases, and the availability of mutants associated with fat metabolism in order to understand the complexity of fat metabolism. Many metabolic genes are potential targets under the control of KLF.
2: The role for KLFs in lipoprotein assembly and secretion: Dietary lipids are absorbed from the small intestines and transported to various organs and tissues to maintain lipid/cholesterol homeostasis. For transportation, the assembly of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins requires the formation of a complex between apolipoprotein B (apoB), a structural protein, and microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (MTP), an endoplasmic resident chaperone. MTP and apoB interact during lipoprotein assembly to facilitate lipoprotein production and therefore genetic loss of either apoB or MTP results in the inability of both the liver and intestine to secrete very low density lipoprotein (VLDL). They are interested in the mechanisms underlying lipoprotein assembly and transport, to better understand the regulatory role of klf in these processes, and identify novel targets for new therapies.
Project 3: Lipid metabolism dysfunction associated tumor formation: The dysfunctional lipid metabolism that results in excess fat accumulation is a growing cause of cancer development. However, the changes occurred by builds up of fat that may lead to tumor development remain poorly understood. Excess fat deposits in adipose tissue and/or the defects in their ability to metabolize fatty acids, results in insulin resistance. Recently, insulin resistance, and increased production of insulin-like growth factors have been reported to upsurge the risk of cancer. They have demonstrated that suppression of Ce-klf-1 activity results in fat accumulation and increased cell death. The role of KLF-1 in fat metabolism and its function as a tumor suppressor provides a conceptual framework associating fat accumulation with tumor growth. Our hypothesis is that KLF-1 acts as a major regulator of events in intestine, with alterations in KLF-1 activity leading, through as yet unspecified mechanisms, to fat accumulation and increased apoptosis.

Dr. Yasmin Ahmad is currently working as Senior Scientist in Peptide and Proteomics Division, DIPAS. She has been working extensively on the human physiological alterations and their molecular signatures for last several years and achieved some success in answering some critical questions of high attitude physiology. As a pioneer of proteomic research at DIPAS, her initial work was on optimization and establishment of tools and techniques which was later translated into animal as well as clinical/non clinical samples (blood, saliva and tissue). She also, investigated the potential ‘proteomics based biomarkers’ demarcating hypoxia pathophysiology from normoxic condition. Her key contributions included: (i) identification of potential targets for predicting HAPE (ii) screening of human plasma obtained from high altitude natives to understand the adaptive mechanism under hypobaric hypoxia and (iii) identification of novel differentiation protein markers in hypobaric hypoxia induced rat model, for the better understanding of dynamic changes that occur in plasma and lung tissue. (iv) Plasma and saliva protein(s) based conceptual diagnostic tool for assessing high altitude-acclimation in humans. (v) Development of HAPE animal model. She also conducted proteomic studies of blood platelets where the clinical relationship of calpain protein was established with hypobaric hypoxia induced thrombosis. Besides, general identification of blood based Protein markers/Panels for HAPE and assessing high altitude acclimatization, she was also involved in exploring the therapeutic interventions, both herbal and non-herbal on simulated hypoxia- animal models. She also, achieved a significant success in validation one of known phyto-extract silymarin as potential candidate for high altitude prophylactic, which appeared in one the foremost journal of free radical biology, FRBM. As an extension of aforesaid studies, she is currently working on expanding the clinical applicability and translating the work for the direct clinical use in theranostics, through a possible development of diagnostic test and biosensors for high altitude-mediated physiological alterations.
