Biography

It was long back I saw a man with skin lesions, horrified me of my innocence. I was not in the stage of understanding the term ‘toxic chemical’, later I came to know about the disastrous toxic element arsenic; its origin- physicochemistry in our body- painful outcome-how to solve the problem? During my B.Sc Honors course in Botany at Ram Krishna Mission VC College, University of Calcutta, I deeply inclined to ecological system knowledge. In my M.Sc in Environmental Science, University of Kalyani,I did dissertation on forest nutrient cycling, and experienced practical ecology. I got worked to arsenic risk related issues in Nadia district during M.Phil in Environmental Science, Jadavpur University; and I started my research concentrating on arsenic, there are so many things to do. 
            As a PhD researcher I  worked among the people suffering from arsenic and at the risk in the endemic areas of West Bengal, India. My research focused on arsenic accumulation mechanism and potential in rice and vegetable, response of human biomarkers after arsenic, bio-methylation of arsenic in human, bioavailability study from different dietary sources.
            Teaching is exciting for me as well like research. My desires to engage,challenge, and inspire growth in my students not limited to classrooms. That I am following in my short span of teaching in the Department of Environmental Science, Kanchrapara College, West Bengal, India-743145. Besides my current research focus on biomethylation of arsenic in human, bioavailability study from different dietary sources, arsenic in planktons and food chain contamination.

Research Interests

Human Health Risk Assessment and bioavailability of arsenic and metals;
Arsenic Bio-Geochemistry in Rice field ecosystem; 
Plant-metal interaction proteomics; 
Arsenic Speciation chemistry in water, soil and diets;
Gastro-intestinal transformation of arsenic species-SHIME, Arsenic Bio-methylation and speciation, 
Metal biogeochemistry;

Pasquale Avino received Master in Chemistry at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 1992 and Ph.D. in Chemical Sciences at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 1997.
From 1997 to 1998 he was appointed as post-graduate researcher at the University of California, Irvine (USA) studying the separation of non-methane compounds and the halocarbons and their behavior in atmosphere. The year was spent at the Rowland’s Laboratory.
In September 1997 he participated in the SONEX project funded by NASA on the determination of hydrocarbons in troposphere: he was a recipient of the NASA SONEX award for the contribution to the project.
From 1999 until now he has appointed as researcher at the ISPESL Research Center. Dr. Avino is involved in the Air Chemical Laboratory: his studies are devoted to the different aspects of the atmospheric pollution but the main regard is the characterization of areas at high sensibility both residential (urban and suburban) and industrial sites.
In 2003 he was the recipient of the “Environmental Sapio” Award for his research in the environmental field and in particular in the atmospheric particulate matter problems (characterization, physical and chemical composition, health effects, etc.).
From 2002 to 2005 he was responsible for ISPESL in the European Project (FP VI) “Methodology to develop Acute Exposure Threshold Levels (ACUTEX) in case of chemical release” (P.I. dr. Annick Pichard, INERIS, France): in the implementation of the “Seveso II” Directive, the project would be increase the methodologies, softwares and guidelines to establish acute exposure levels in case of accidental release of toxic chemical substances.
From 2004 dr. Avino has appointed Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Molise, Campobasso and Professor of Environmental Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Rome.
Dr. Avino attends to many national and International Committee Panels for problems connected with environmental efforts.

Rafik KaramanPhD

Professor

Al-Quds University
Address:Palestine
Biography

Professor Rafik Karaman is currently a distinguished professor of pharmaceutical sciences, College of Pharmacy, Al-Quds University, Jerusalem, Palestine. He received his Ph.D. degree in pharmaceutical/bioorganic chemistry from the Hebrew University in 1987, his MS degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the Hebrew University in 1983, and his bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy from the Hebrew University in 1981. He was an Assistant Professor at the University of Toledo and University of California at Santa Barbara for 5 years where he worked with Professor T.C.Bruice in the bioorganic chemistry field. Professor Karaman is broadly interested in the design and synthesis of prodrug systems to be used for the delivery of certain drugs that have poor water solubility or/and have low bioavailability as well as synthesis of prodrugs for masking the bitter sensation of commonly used drugs. The prodrug design is executed using ab initio, DFT, semiempirical, molecular mechanics as well as molecular dynamics and conformational dynamics methods. The overarching goal of Karaman’s research activities is to establish a method for obtaining prodrugs that their interconversion rates will be controlled or programmed by the chemical features of the linker (promoiety) attached to their active parent drugs. Professor Karaman has more than 150 peer-reviewed manuscripts and book chapters; 100 of them were published in the recent 7 years. He is currently an editor and an editorial
board member of 30 international journals in the areas of pharmaceutical sciences.

Research Interests

1.  Pharmaceuticals removal from wastewater using clay micelle complex, hollow fiber, spiral wounds, charcoal and other adsorbents.
2. Pharmaceuticals removal from wastewater using photodegradation methods such as light/TiO2.
3. Stability of Pharmaceuticals in wastewater and isolation and characterization of degradation products (metabolites).
4. Design, synthesis, characterization and in vitro and in vivo kinetics of pro-prodrug systems to be used for the delivery for certain drugs that have poor water solubility or/and have low bioavailability using ab initio, DFT, semiempirical, molecular mechanics as well as molecular dynamics and conformational dynamics methods. The in-vitro studies will be conducted in media mimics that of stomach (pH 1.2), intestine (pH 6.8) and blood circulation (pH 7.4). The in-vivo studies will be conducted in certain animals and the pharmacokinetic parameters will be determined using advanced technology such as, HPLC and LC-MS.
5. Design and synthesis of linkers to be used for masking bitter taste of drugs that contain a hydroxyl or amine groups (antimalarial, anti-hypertension, anti-bleeding, antibacterial and anticancer drugs) using DFT calculation methods. The synthesis will be carried out using standard organic methods and the kinetic rates of the intramolecular processes will be determined by HPLC monitoring.
6. Design and synthesis of bitter taste antagonists for inactivation of the bitter taste receptor 14.The design will be accomplished using molecular orbital and molecular mechanics methods.
