Perrys research is primarily focused on the mechanism of formation and physiological consequences of the cytopathology of Alzheimer disease. He has played a key role in elucidating oxidative damage as the initial cytopathological abnormality in Alzheimer disease. He is currently working to determine the sequence of events leading to neuronal oxidative damage and the source of the increased oxygen radicals. His current studies focus on two issues: (i) the metabolic basis for the mitochondrial damage restricted to vulnerable neurons; and (ii) the consequences of RNA oxidation on protein synthesis rate and fidelity.

Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stanford University′s School of Medicine, a Core Faculty Member at the Center for Health Policy/Primary Care and Outcomes Research, and a Faculty Affiliate of the Stanford Center on Longevity. His research focuses on complex policy decisions in health and medicine: how to improve population health given the reality of budgetary and other resource constraints. He is keenly interested in applying a model-based, decision-analytic framework to these problems as they relate to a range of infectious and non-communicable diseases in both developed and developing countries. To do so, he constructs, calibrates, and validates computer-based models of diseases in populations that allow him to consider the health, economic, and distributional implications of alternative policies. Dr. Goldhaber-Fiebert graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1997, with an A.B. in the History and Literature of America. After working as a software engineer and consultant, he conducted a year-long public health research program in Costa Rica with his wife in 2001. Winner of the Lee B.

I am also interested in tackling practical and challenging privacy problems in health-data related environments, including electronic medical record and healthcare systems.

Biography :

Hualing interests went on in Computer aided modeling of anatomic deformation, allowing various techniques and protocols in radiation therapy to be systematically verified and studied, has become increasingly attractive. In this study the potential issues in deformable image registration (DIR) were analyzed based on two numerical phantoms: One, a synthesized, low intensity gradient prostate image, and the other a lung patients CT image data set. Each phantom was modeled with region-specific material parameters with its deformation solved using a finite element method. The resultant displacements were used to construct a benchmark to quantify the displacement errors of the Demons and B-Spline-based registrations. The results show that the accuracy of these registration algorithms depends on the chosen parameters, the selection of which is closely associated with the intensity gradients of the underlying images.

Biography :

Dr. Chung received her MD in China Medical College, Taiwan and PHD in National Yang Ming University, Taiwan. Now she is an attending physician in Neurological Institute, Taipei Veterans General Hospital. Her clinical practices are mainly focused on cerebrovascular diseases such as cerebral venous insufficiency and cerebral small vessel disease, and professional specialty is cerebrovascular Doppler ultrasonography.
As an Assistant Professor of National Yang Ming University, Her research interests are (i) to explore the mechanism of cerebral microcirculatory pathologies in age and chronic kidney disease-related cerebral insults (vascular dementia), and (ii) to uncover the influences of cerebral venous insufficiency on cerebral circulation and its role in certain neurological diseases. To achieve these goals, several studies have been conducted which are highlighted as followed:
Identified the profiles of jugular venous reflux and its clinical significances
She used color-coded Doppler ultrasonography and MRI to reveal the hemodynamic patterns of jugular venous reflux in normal population, and patients of transient global amnesia, transient monocular blindness, migraine and age-related white matter changes (Neurology 2006 and 2007, Ultrasound in Medicines & Biology 2007a, 2007b, and 2010, Stroke 2007, Annals of Neurology 2008 and 2010).
Provided evidences that jugular venous reflux could influence cerebral circulation
Using transcranial Doppler and optic fundus scope, she provided evidences to support that jugular venous reflux could influence the cerebral blood flow and the diameter of cerebral small vessels (Cerebrovascular Diseases 2010b).
Established an animal model of jugular venous reflux

Biography :

Dr. Giovanna Romano got her Master in Biological Science in 1983 at the University of Napoli Federico II. During this period she identified some novel opioid-like peptides generated by the physiological hydrolysis of milk proteins.
In the same year she obtained a fellowship at the Stazione Zoologica "A. Dohrn" of Naples in the Laboratory of Biochemistry, working at the caracterization of bioactive peptides in Ciona intestinalis and at the isolation and characterization of the enzyme Acetilcolinesterase in sea urchin sperms (Sphaerechinus granularis).
In 1989 she became researcher of the Stazione Zoologica and started a new project with  Dr. Ianora and Dr. Miralto, in the newborn Ecophysiology Laboratory, to study the physiology of reproduction in Copepod with particular attention to the influence of food. These studies led   to the isolation and characterization of unsaturated aldehydes responsible for the negative impact of diatom diet on Copepod reproduction as reported in a Nature paper in 1999. From that point she worked in collaboration with the group of Angelo Fontana (ICB-CNR) to elucidate the metabolism leading to aldehyde production, beside the research of novel bioactive substances produced by the phytoplankton using various kind of biological assays.
