Biography :

Li Zhang completed her PhD from UCLA and postdoctoral studies from MIT department of Biology. She is the Cecil H. and Ida Green Distinguished Chair in Systems Biology Science at the University of Texas at Dallas. Professor Zhang’s laboratory has worked on studying heme signaling and function for 20+ years. She has published many original research articles and a book entitled “Heme Biology: The Secret Life of Heme in Regulating Diverse Biological Processes” on this subject. Professor Zhang’s laboratory has also made important contributions in understanding the roles of molecular chaperones in cellular signaling, molecular mechanisms of oxygen signaling, and the actions of neurotoxicants. Recently, Professor Zhang’s lab focuses on investigating heme function in lung cancer. She and colleagues have provided a unifying view of cancer bioenergetics in a review article entitled “A Holistic View of Cancer Bioenergetics: Mitochondrial Function and Respiration Play Fundamental Roles in the Development and Progression of Diverse Tumors,” published in the journal “Clinical and Translational Medicine.”

Research Interest :

Clinical and Translational Medicine, Neurotoxicants, Mitochondrial Function, Heme function, Lung cancer

Biography :

Rainer Schuhmacher is an Associate Professor at University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), Vienna where he is heading the working group Metabolomics and Bioactive Compounds. His research focuses on LC-HRMS and GC-MS based metabolomics of microbes and plants with a special focus on the interaction between these living organisms. He received his degrees in Chemistry at University of Konstanz, Germany and Vienna University of Technology, and in 2009 he completed his Habilitation in Analytical Chemistry at BOKU University, Vienna. He is co-author of more than 120 SCI publications.

Research Interest :

Biography :

Anne-Marie Delort is a senior scientist at the CNRS, she is working at the Institute of Chemistry of Clermont-Ferrand in France. In addition to a general background in chemistry and molecular biology, Anne-Marie Delort’s expertise covers Microbiology and Metabolomics. She specifically studies microbial metabolism in relation with the environment. She has been a pioneer in studying the microbial population in clouds. Recent studies concern the adaptation of microorganisms to atmospheric stresses and the role of microorganisms in atmospheric chemistry and physics. This includes the transformation of organic matter, interaction with oxidants, formation of Ice Nuclei and Cloud Condensation Nuclei (biosurfactants). Her group is part of MetaboHUB, the French national infrastructure of excellence in metabolomics and fluxomics.

Research Interest :

microbiology, metabolomic

OCM Member
Professor, College of Pharmacy
Korean University , South Korea
Biography :

Youngja Park obtained an M.S. and Ph.D in Pharmacology and Toxicology under Dr. James P. Kehrer at the University of Texas at Austin in 1990. She previously had worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine and as the Assistant Director of the Clinical Biomarkers Laboratory at the Emory University School of Medicine since 2013. In Emory University, she developed LC-MS based metabolomics pipelines to identify novel biomarkers and the pathways associated with diseases. She published the number of metabolomics papers including Science and Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. Currently she moved back to College of Pharmacy, Korea University where she has built metabolomics core facility after years of experience in research, evaluation and teaching both in hospital and education institutions. Her career goal is to identify the novel biomarkers and develop the sensors in early diagnoses of disease.
