Experimental studies have shown the acceleration of the ageing process and the increase of the risk of development of the diseases associated with age, including the metabolic syndrome, diabetes and cancer, in the conditions of natural light regime of the North. It is shown that the long-term residence in the North and near the Western border of the time zone leads to increased morbidity and mortality from cancer of the individual locations and to reduced life expectancy.

Finally he focused on the p63 transcriptional factor implicated in head and neck cancer and ectodermal dysplasia. He has discovered a molecular mechanism underlying ectodermal dysplasia via p63-dependent regulation of RNA splicing for fibroblast growth factor receptor 2, which functions as a key regulator of the epithelial-mesenchymal transition. His collaborative efforts with Drs. David Sidransky and Barry Trink led to more than 45 international publications, reviews and patents on p63 function.

• Children’s Regenerative Medicine

• Dedifferentiation and Stem Cell Populations and Aging

• Adult Embryonic Potential Stem Cells and Application in Aging

• Fibrosis and Prevention Studies

 Biography
Research Interest :

My primary research focuses on three major areas of study: 1) exploring the properties of the dedifferentiation/transformation of terminally differentiated cells into various stem cells include aged donors; 2) studying the processes involved with fibrous scar formation and prevention in the injured and diseased tissues of the neuron and musculoskeletal system; and 3) Bioengineering to build 3D soft tissues (muscle & tendon) to repair wound defects with scarless healing. The laboratory is also interested in translational study and clinical application of stem cells and engineered tissue for treating congenital diseases and traumatic injuries. We have also set up classic amphibian models of tissue regeneration; newts and salamanders can rebuild most missing body parts such as limbs, liver, brain and heart after amputation or injury, and no age limitation. We will investigate the molecule and cellular dedifferentiation process for increasing the stem cell population and methods of preventing fibrotic scar tissue formation during mammalian wound healing. Our expectation is to transfer our learning from amphibian regenerative models to enlarge stem cell pool for regenerative medicine applications, and to build various functional human tissues/organs for human patients’ demand.

Biography :

Dr. Cédric Albinet is associate professor in cognitive psychology and behavioral neurosciences at the Department of Exercise Sciences at the University of Poitiers, France and researcher at the CNRS. He held his PhD in Human Movement Science on the effects of physical exercise on the aging of motor learning, at the University Paul Sabatier (Toulouse, France) in 2004. After a research stay at the University of Georgia (USA) with Prof. Phil Tomporowski in 2003 (aging and attentional control of movement), he worked at the University Montpellier 1 (France) with Dr. Pierrick Bernard for one year in 2004-2005 (exercise and attentional control of balance in Alzheimer patients). Dr. Albinet currently teaches at the Department of Exercise Sciences and at the Department of Psychology at the graduate and post-graduate level on the effects of exercise on physical, cognitive and brain health in the elderly.

Biography :

Dr. Richardson obtained a degree and masters degree from the Universities of London and Aberdeen. He worked as a medical physicist and researcher into brain tumour therapies using monoclonal antibodies. For his University of Bristol PhD, he assessed the risk of leukaemia for natural radon gas, published in The Lancet, and appeared before the Environment Committee of the British Parliament. He has published extensively (see ResearchGate) on tritium and 14C, and realistic dosimetric/oxygen models for coronary arteries and bone remodelling. His latest research explores the mechanisms whereby p53 mutations, radiation or infections induce cancer but also the role of stem cell senescence and its parallel relationship with aging. Published or submitted articles are in Aging, Leukemia Research, Cell Cycle and Experimental Gerontology. Currently a section leader at AECL, Ontario, Canada carrying out research into terrestrial and space radiation dosimetry/aging and leukemia radiation treatments at Ottawa Hospital. Dr. Richardson is an adjunct professor of McGill University and has authored 75 peer-reviewed articles.
