Dr. Arnold Jonathan Wilkins is a Emeritus Professor in University of Essex Colchester, UK. He is a Professional Member of Experimental Psychology Society, British Psychological Society, British Neuropsychiatry Association. After PhD in semantic memory (with AD Baddeley as advisor) he studied as a postdoctoral fellow with B Milner at the Montreal Neurological Institute. There he carried out a study of pattern-sensitive epilepsy. The study led to an exploration of visual stress/photophobia which has continued to this day. He also discovered visual correlates of headache and showed that visual stimulation that causes seizures was responsible also for visual discomfort. These discoveries led to a general neurological theory of visual stress. The treatment of visual stress using individually prescribed ophthalmic tints evolved from this theory. He developed the first scientifically designed system of ophthalmic tinting and demonstrated its benefits in the treatment of reading disorders. With Professor Jie Huang he has shown abnormal blood oxygenation in patients with migraine in response to stressful patterns, and has shown that this abnormality can be reduced using individually prescribed ophthalmic tints. He has published three books and more than 200 publications in peer-reviewed journals. He has received support from the Medical Research Council, the Economics and Social Science Research Council, and the Wellcome Trust. His research interests centre on photophobia, photosensitive epilepsy and photosensitive migraine.

Dr. Ilya Ulasov is a staff scientist and principal investigator at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute of Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, WA. He is a translational cancer biologist focusing on intervention for glioblastoma multiforme and cell signaling in brain metastases using experimental viral (adenovirus) and non-viral (nanoparticles) approaches. In particular, Dr. Ulasov and his collaborators are working toward the design of cancer-specific, recombinant, self-replicated, adenoviral vectors. Using transcriptomic and proteomic assays, Dr. Ulasov searches for tumor-specific targets for gene and drug therapy, and he aims to design comprehensive translational approaches to target tumor-initiated and tumor-circulated stem cells resistant to radiation and chemotherapy. Recently, Dr. Ulasov and collaborators identified a lack of autophagy response in glioma stem cells mediated by human cytomegalovirus. Dr. Ulasov’s research into oncolytic adenoviruses in the presence of drugs that promote autophagy may improve the targeting of glioma stem cells, which could have a significant impact on clinical treatment of glioma. His research interests: gene therapy, oncolytic adenoviruses, brain metastases and glioblastoma multiforme, mechanisms of cancer cells resistance to the therapy and adenovirus infection.

Dr. Nadejda M Tsankova is an Assistant Professor in Pathology and Neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Her laboratory studies the molecular mechanisms of gliomagenesis in endogenous human-based models. She is also a practicing neuropathologist, specializing in the diagnoses of complex neurological disorders including epilepsy, inflammatory and neurodegenerative conditions, and brain tumors. She received her M.D./Ph.D. from UT Southwestern Medical Center, where she pioneered the studies of neuroepigenetics in chronic stress/depression with Dr. Eric Nester. Following the path of a Physician-Scientist, she then completed her residency in Anatomic Pathology and fellowship in Neuropathology at Columbia University, where she became intrigued with studying the pathogenesis of human gliomas. Working in the laboratory of Dr. Fiona Doetsch, she developed novel techniques to isolate endogenous neural progenitors from human brain, creating a transitional system to study molecular dysregulation during gliomagenesis. Previously an Assistant Professor at Columbia University and now one at Mount Sinai, Dr. Tsankova also has fruitful and ongoing collaborations with several investigators from the departments of Neurosurgery, Neuroscience, and Psychiatry.

Dr. Liam Chen is an Assistant Professor in Pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is also a practicing neuropathologist, specializing in the diagnoses of complex neurological disorders including brain tumors, inflammatory and neurodegenerative conditions. Dr. Chen received residency training in Anatomic Pathology and fellowship training in Neuropathology and Molecular Genetic Pathology at Harvard Medical School. His laboratory is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration in human disorder. His laboratory takes advantage of a simple animal model, Drosophila melanogaster, to harness the power of genetics to define cellular pathways underlying the specific destruction of postmitotic neurons in neurodegenerative disorders. Using this approach, Dr. Chen's laboratory has created new fruit fly models of several human diseases, including frontotemporal dementia (FTD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease), and chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Now working as an independent principal investigator at Johns Hopkins, he also has fruitful and ongoing collaborations with several investigators from the departments of Neurosurgery, Neuroscience, and Pathology.
