– Keynote Speaker: Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi
Dr. Ohsumi has been recently awarded the 2012 Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences in the field of Life Sciences for his defining work in autophagy, a process by which living cells adapt to their environment. Dr. Ohsumi has made landmark contributions toward elucidating the molecular mechanisms and physiological significance of autophagy, a cellular adaptive system to environment. Autophagy is now regarded as a vital cell-recycling system and may aid in future developments to treat neurodegenerative maladies such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and other age-related ailments. Dr. Ohsumi is currently a professor at the Frontier Research Center of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, where he and his team continue their world-leading work in autophagy.
