Alan Prem KumarPhD

Assistant Professor
Department of Pharmacology
Cancer Science Institute of Singapore
Address:Singapore
Biography

Dr. Alan Prem Kumar earned his Ph.D. from University of North Texas, USA. From his Ph.D. work, he discovered a novel regulatory protein, PyrR for the pyrimidine biosynthetic pathway in Pseudomonas. Because pyrimidine biosynthesis is an essential step in the progression of secondary Pseudomonas infections, PyrR presents an attractive anti-pseudomonal drug target. Dr. Kumar then pursued Postdoctoral training in Cancer Research at Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, California, USA. He was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship for his work on the role of nuclear receptors in the transcriptional regulation of human myeloperoxidase, a leukocyte enzyme implicated as causative agent in atherosclerosis and Alzheimer�s disease. Dr. Kumar relocated back to Singapore to join the Faculty of Medicine, National University of Singapore as an independent Principal Investigator to continue on his expertise on nuclear receptor and cancer biology. His current research interest includes the role of nuclear receptors involved in the regulation of target genes and to elucidate mechanism and associated signal pathways. Another area of interest is to have a greater understanding of these nuclear receptors � aimed at developing newer selective PPAR gamma modulators, drugs with more potent activity and less toxicity. Towards this end, Dr. Kumar identified a series of 21 structurally new PPAR gamma activators by computer-aided drug design using a combination of ligand-based and structure-based approaches. In collaboration with GenoMed, Inc, USA, he has recently identified a new tyrosine kinase involved in the progression of ovarian, breast, and prostate cancers. Inhibitors were developed against this kinase using computer-aided drug design. In-silico filters were used to eliminate drug compounds with undesirable absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicological (ADMET) properties. His goal is to use these drugs to demonstrate its effectiveness in a variety of cancer cell lines, mouse xenograft, with intent to a pilot clinical trial here in Singapore. Over the years, Dr. Kumar and his laboratory have forged relationships with scientists in cancer research and with cancer advocacy groups in Singapore.

Research Interests

My primary research focuses in the areas of signaling by nuclear receptors and oncogenes as well as the development of molecular therapeutics and biomarkers of drug action in human breast cancer. We recently identified a novel oncogene that regulates a key pathway controlling cell proliferation, migration and drug resistance in breast, prostate, gastric, and colon cancers. Current research also focuses on developing therapeutic strategies to target this marker with the ultimate aim of conducting translational studies in patients.

Banaras Hindu University
Address:India
Biography

Professor (Mrs.) Chandana Haldar, Head, Department of Zoology, Banaras Hindu University, is involved research in the field of Pineal gland & Melatonin physiology. The team of Prof. C. Haldar is engaged in establishing the correlation of Reproduction (reproductive hormone) and Immunity (general) in small rodents and birds. She established the immunomodulatory and antioxidative nature of melatonin and its receptor expression (MT1and MT2) in lymphoid tissues in seasonal breeders. Melatonin reduces the immuno- and nephro-toxicity induced by steroids, antibiotics and irradiation (gamma, X-Ray and UV). Further, role of Pineal gland and Melatonin in Reproduction, Gestation, Fetal Development etc. might be controlled by melatonin via the gene expression of MT 1/ MT2R in SCN, reproductive and lymphoid organs. The results may substantiate our hypothesis that melatonin through its receptor regulates immune responses in order to provide a good health for healthy reproduction. Establishment of such a key physiological event of organism may lead us to protect animal biodiversity.

Biography

With a strong focus on novel antibody production Stephen Harding was awarded his PhD from the University of Wales for research on the characterisation of heat shock proteins. This was followed by a post-doctoral research post at the University of Leicester studying p38 and JNK signaling pathways in the ischemic heart. He then worked for 5 years in the biotechnology industry, initially in the development of high-throughput screening technologies for the identification of novel kinase inhibitors (Biofocus Ltd.) and subsequently in the production of novel anti-tumor monoclonal antibodies (Scancell Ltd.).

In 2006 he joined Binding Site with a responsibility for organising clinical studies utilising serum free light chain measurements. After a short period this remit was then extended to include the concept to launch development of the Hevylite immunoassays. Stephen has been the author of ~200 peer reviewed abstracts, >20 papers and contributed to several book chapters. Since 2011, Stephen has been the Research & Development Director of The Binding Site.
