 Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn, Chemistry Nobel Laureate (1987) (Live Video Conference)

 University of Strasbourg Institute for Advanced Study (USIAS), France

 Jean-Marie Lehn is Professor at the University of Strasbourg Institute for Advanced Study (USIAS), Emeritus Professor at the University of Strasbourg, and Honorary Professor at the Collège de France in Paris. In 1968, he achieved the synthesis of cage-like molecules (cryptands) containing a cavity (crypt) into which another entity, molecule or ion of specific nature, can be lodged, forming a cryptate. This work expanded into the investigation of the chemical basis of “molecular recognition” (the way in which a receptor molecule recognises and selectively binds a substrate), which plays a fundamental role in biological processes. Over the years these studies led to the definition of a new field of chemistry, which he called “supramolecular chemistry”. It deals with the complex entities formed by the association of two or more chemical species held together by intermolecular forces.

 In 1987, Jean Marie Lehn was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, together with Donald Cram and Charles J. Pedersen.

 Professor Lehn's work developed into the chemistry of self-organisation processes, based on the design of "programmed" chemical systems that undergo spontaneous assembly of suitable components into well-defined supramolecular species, directed by the supramolecular processing of molecular information. More recently, the implementation of dynamic features and of selection led to the development of “constitutional dynamic chemistry”, concerning entities able to undergo reorganisation in response to external stimuli, thus pointing to the emergence of an “adaptive and evolutive chemistry”.

Tissue engineering involves the triad of biomaterial science, growth factor delivery, and molecular biology to engineer devices for cell immobilization and tissue regeneration. Jabbari’s research draws upon chemistry, biology, macromolecular science and exploits biomimetic strategies to engineer cellular constructs for regeneration of skeletal tissues. Biologically-inspired materials combined with micro/nanoscale technologies can potentially create constructs to support delivery, differentiation, and maturation of progenitor cells to multiple lineages to regenerate complex tissues like bone and cartilage. Current projects include (1) bio-inspired multiscale constructs for regeneration of load-bearing large bone segments, (2) micro-patterned cellular constructs with gradient of growth factors for concurrent induction of osteogenesis and vasculogenesis, (3) multilayer gradient constructs for the regeneration of articular cartilage, (4) cancer stem cell mechanotransduction in an engineered matrix, and (4) synthesis of self-assembled nanogels for the delivery of multiple growth factors in regenerative medicine.

  Dr. Angelo Homayoun All

 Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, USA

 Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong

 The focus of Dr Angelo Homayoun All’s research is on nervous system injury, repair and regeneration. His laboratory has pioneered the monitoring and quantitative analysis of multi-channel somatosensory and motor-evoked potentials in order to assess the electrical integrity of the nervous system at various stages, both pre- and post-injury. His translational research projects involve hypothermia treatment as well as stem cell replacement therapy derived from human embryonic stem cells, human iPS cells, and direct conversion by trans-differentiation of human adult cells. These stem cells are also modified to induce overexpression of neurotrophic factors in order to modulate the lesion microenvironment and stimulate endogenous regenerative responses post-injury.

 A part of Dr All’s laboratory is also investigating the application of upconversion nanoparticles in conjunction with near infrared illumination systems for the neuromodulation applications both in vitro and in vivo. The goal is to develop a semi-invasive tool for stimulating or inhibiting, with spatio-temporal precision, neuropathways situated deep in the nervous system (the spinal cord, motor cortex, vagus nerve, etc) selectively. In addition, his laboratory is studying the adult central nervous system’s capabilities of adaptive changes enabling reorganisation and plasticity in spared neuropathways following neuro-trauma. In his projects, Dr All has also integrated different imaging techniques to monitor anatomical changes in contused spinal cord architectures at various time points enabling him to identify spared fibres (anatomically intact but non-functional neuropathways post-injury) and tracking the extent of secondary injury to determine the therapeutic benefits of the various treatment strategies.
