Speech Title: Emerging technologies for food: 3D printing and customized nutrition
Abstract: 3D printing is the most recent emerging technology in food sector. This technic is already leading to a revolution in many other sectors such as rapid prototyping, regenerative medicine and quick manufacturing of mechanical spare parts, so much so that a 3D Printer has been brought from NASA to the Space with this aim. Indeed, the 3D Printing potentially allows infinite degrees of freedom to build infinite shapes and internal structures. More...

Speech Title: The inhibited the expression of GATA-3 on Th2 cells transfected Astragalus-derived miR-396 of asthmatic mice In vivo
Abstract: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small noncoding RNA that, through mediating posttranscriptional gene regulation, play a critical role in nearly all biological processes. Over the last decade it has become apparent that plant miRNAs may serve as a novel functional component of traditional herbs with therapeutic effects anti-inflammation and antitumor. More...

Speech Title: Surface treatment of biomaterial Co-Cr-Mo alloy by using a hollow-cathode glow discharge plasma with oxygen mixed gas
Abstract: In order to improve the corrosion resistance of a biomaterial Co-Cr-Mo alloy (CCM alloy), we investigated a surface treatment to form an oxide film on it using argon-oxygen or neon-oxygen mixed gas glow discharge plasmas under emission spectroscopic analysis of the plasma, and then the formed oxide film was evaluated by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.

Speech Title: Translating genomics data into clinical practice: computational approaches to drug repurposing
Abstract: The time and cost for novel drug discovery is ever-increasing. Drug repurposing, i.e. using existing drugs for new therapeutic indications, represents a cost-effective approach to speed up drug development. With increased availability of large-scale “omics” data such as those from genome-wide association studies, computational methods might play a more important role in drug discovery or repurposing.

Speech Title: The molecular mechnism of high oleaginicity in oleaginous fungus Mucor circinelloides WJ11
Abstract: The oleaginous fungus, Mucor circinelloides, is one of few fungi that produce high amounts of γ-linolenic acid (GLA); however, it usually only produces <25% lipid. Nevertheless, a new strain (WJ11) isolated in this laboratory can produce lipid up to <36% of (w/w) cell dry weight (CDW). We have investigated the potential mechanism of high lipid accumulation in WJ11 by genomic, proteomic, comparative biochemical analysis and 13C labeled metabolic flux analysis with a low lipid accumulating strain CBS 277.49, which accumulates less than 15% (w/w) lipid.
