Biography :

Dr. Q. Ping Dou is Professor of Oncology, Pharmacology and Pathology, Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, MI. Dr. Dou obtained his B.S. degree in chemistry from Shandong University in 1981, Ph.D. degree in chemistry from Rutgers University in 1988, and postdoctoral training at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School from 1988 to 1993 (Mentor: Arthur B. Pardee). Dr. Dou has extensive experience in the fields of drug discovery, chemoprevention, natural products, proteasome inhibitors, cell cycle and apoptosis. He has published ~200 peer-reviewed research and review articles, many of those in journals of the highest quality, and also holds ~10 patents. He has extensive experience in professional service, including various study sections, several advisory and editorial boards, and committees. He has mentored numerous graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty.

 Biography
Research Interest :

The main objective in Dr. Dou’s laboratory is aimed at discovering molecular targets of natural products in pre-clinical studies, followed by validation in targeted cancer intervention clinical trials. Dr. Dou's laboratory is one of the first to report that proteasome inhibitors rapidly induce tumor cell apoptosis, selectively activate the cell death program in oncogene-transformed, but not normal or untransformed cells, and are able to trigger apoptotic death in human cancer cells that are resistant to various anticancer agents. Dr. Dou's laboratory has shown that some tea polyphenols and medicinal compounds potently and specifically inhibit the chymotrypsin-like activity of the proteasome in vitro and in vivo at physiological concentrations. His laboratory has established, for the first time, a computational molecular model that shows how these natural compounds bind and target the proteasome chymotrypsin subunit. This innovative computational model has been validated by comparison of predicted and actual activities of tea polyphenol analogs, either naturally occurring or rationally designed and synthesized. Also, Dr. Dou and collaborators have reported that (i) some old copper-binding drugs (such as the antialcoholism drug Disulfiram) could converting the pro-angiogenic copper to a specific cancer cell death inducer, (ii) Disulfiram also promotes the conversion of carcinogenic cadmium to a proteasome inhibitor with pro-apoptotic activity in human cancer cells, and (iii) environmental toxic organotins target the proteasome in human cells and proteasome inhibition by organotins contributes to their cellular toxicity. Most recently, Dr. Dou and collaborators have found that (i) novel epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) analogs and BR-DIM activate AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) pathway, target cancer stem cells and induce apoptosis, and (ii) novel EGCG and curcumin analogs increase efficacy of bortezomib (BTZ) in human multiple myeloma (MM) cells.

Rev. etc). He had been Editor of books on Developmental Neuropharmacology and Neurotoxicology (Raven Press, NY; Pergamon Press, NY; Academic Press, London). He has been invited to join the Editorial Board of Neurotoxicology and Teratology, Neuroscience Research Communication, Toxicology Letters, Pharmacol. Res., World Journal of Clinical Pediatrics, World Journal of Pharmacology and Asian Journal of Pharmacological Sciences. He also acted as an active Organizer of several national and international meetings.

The scientific work of Prof. Vincenzo Cuomo has been carried out also in collaboration with prestigious laboratories (Laboratory of Behavioral Toxicology, University di Zurich, Switzerland; Dept. of Environmental Health Sciences, Division of Toxicology, The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA; Dept. of Zoology, Kings College, University of London, UK; Dept. of Biological Sciences, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA; Dept. of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge, London, UK; Environmental Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, NC, USA; Dept. of Neurobiology, Babraham Institute, Cambridge, UK; Dept. of Pharmacology; Laboratoire de Toxicologie et d’Hygiene Appliquée, Université Bordeaux II, France; University of Nottingham, UK; Dept. of Pharmacology, University of California, Irvine, CA, USA). Moreover, a large number of young scientists have been trained in his laboratory.

 Biography
Research Interest :

The interest of Prof. Vincenzo Cuomo has been mainly focused on the neurobehavioral, neurochemical and electrophysiological alterations associated with the developmental exposure to psychotropic drugs, substances of abuse and environmental chemicals. By using innovative experimental approaches his research has been mainly focused on preclinical patterns for the ontogenetic study of emotionality and also on the neurochemical and behavioral effects following intake of psychotropic drugs during pregnancy or the first stage of postnatal life. One of important steps in the development of behavioral pharmacology and toxicology is represented by his investigations into the feasibility of using the ultrasonic calls emitted by rodents as a bioassay for the effects of psychotropic drugs on emotional reactivity in both infant and adult rats. To exploit this new important area of research, since 1984 Prof. Cuomo has equipped his laboratory with modern and high quality apparatus for recording and analyzing ultrasound emission. By this and other behavioral techniques he provided evidence that the particular period of developmental exposure to psychotropic drugs plays a critical role in producing behavioral and neurochemical abnormalities in rodents.

Prof. Vincenzo Cuomo’s research also focuses on the behavioral and neurochemical effects of neuroactive compounds in animal models of psychiatric disorders. In particular, by using behavioral equipments that allow investigating different facets of memory (i.e., recognition, spatial, contextual memory), emotionality (i.e., rodent models of anxiety and depression) and feeding behavior, his current research is investigating the role plaid by the endocannabinoid system in the regulation of memory, emotions and food intake.

His Laboratory has been involved in the IPCS/WHO Collaborative Study on Neurobehavioral Screening Methods. By using a standard battery of behavioural tests the participating laboratories demonstrated the ability to detect known neurotoxic chemicals and identify profiles of effects that differred from non-neurotoxic agents. Nevertheless, results from the collaborative studies strongly supported the use of behavioural tests in hazard identification.
