Dr. Yonglei Liu
Research Interests: The role of tumor stroma (fibroblasts) in regulation of cancer and cancer stem cells (metastasis, signal pathway, metabolism and others ); gene expression and function regulation by miRNAs, exosomes and signal pathways in cancer.
Dr. Olatunde Farombi – SOT Global Senior Scholar Exchange Award Recipient
Research Interests: Dr. Farombi’s research over the past 20 years has included molecular toxicology, cellular oxidative stress, mechanisms in toxicology, reproductive and environmental toxicology, antioxidant redox biochemistry, nutraceuticals as prophylactic agents, and nutrigenomics. He is known nationally and internationally for his contributions on the biochemical and molecular mechanisms of chemoprevention using Kolaviron, a natural antioxidant biflavonoid from the seed of Garcinia kola (bitter kola, a widely consumed nut in West Africa).
Research Interests: Toxicity effects and mechanisms of Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) on oxidative stress, apoptosis and gene expression in regenerating of planarian Dugesia japonica. Effects of plant growth regulators and endophytic fungi on tissue culture, polysaccharide and alkaloid production, gene expression of Dendrobium officinale.
Dr. Zuoqing Yuan
Research Interests: Neural regeneration toxicity and mechanism of Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in Planarian Dugesia japonica.
Dr. Amit Hagar
Research Interests: Biophysical Modeling of Solid Tumors and History and Philosophy of Science.
