Speech Title: Value of Edible and Ornamental Horticultural Plants in Our Living

Abstract: Plants, although immobile, have ability to adapt to diverse surroundings, and are intelligent to have the ability to move in response to a given situation. In this process, they produce diverse metabolites and products which can be utilized for many purposes in human lives. Plants are important in our living, since they are sources of food and pharmaceuticals, provide us a way to establish our shelters and aesthetic beauty, to purify the air, and are significant factors in human stress reduction. In addition, plants prevent erosion and provide habitat and cover for animals in the wild, and are an integral part of wetland purification of water. Plants are also recognized as a factor for promotion of our physical, mental, and social health. Horticulture deals with various plants used not only as food such as vegetables and fruits, but also as ornamentals including flowers, lawn, and many herbaceous and woody garden plants. Consumption of edible horticultural crops such as vegetables and fruits, which are sources of vitamins, minerals and many functional metabolites, reduces heart disease and neutralizes free radicals involved in aging and some forms of cancers in our bodies. Many of our pharmaceuticals such as aspirin and taxol comes from the plants also. Ornamental plants contribute for reduction of various types of human stress. Plants placed in areas where people congrgate helps people to cope with the dark days, and the production and use of indoor plants has become a big industry worldwide. The plants are necessary for our very survival and environment, and as ornaments.

Prof. Yong Sang Song
Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, College of Medicine, Seoul National University, Korea

He worked in University of Wyoming, Laramie, as research fellow in Department of Molecular Biology from 1997 to 1999. He set down and became professor and associate dean of College of Medicine Seoul National University Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology from 2006 to present and he was elected as chairman of Korean Society of Urogynecology in 2006. And in 2009 he was selected as director of Cancer Research Institute in 2009 in Seoul National University. In 2009, he also organized International Conference of NAPA and was selected as chairman of Asian Society of Gynecologic Oncology (ASGO) Scientific Committee. In 2012 he was selected as president of Korean Society of Cancer Prevention.
His major interests are molecular mechanisms of tumors, especially the role of tumor microenvironment in cancer cell metabolism and chemoresistance and precision medicine in ovarian cancer. He is particularly interested in the impacts of components of tumor microenvironment in ovarian cancer progression. He has published more than 300 papers in the science citation index (SCI) journals such as BMC cancer, Molecular Carcinogenesis, Cancer Letters, Oncotarget etc. He has received the prize of Scientific Paper, Korean Scientific Association, Grand prize, Korean Society of Colposcopy and Gynecologic Oncology, Academic award, International Conference on Ovarian Cancer, President Award on Prevention in Korean Government and Boryung Cancer Academic Award on Prevention in Korea. He is also the editor in chief and senior editor or member of editorial board of scientific journals, such as International Journal of Clinical Medicine, Journal of Cancer Prevention, Cancer Letters and Molecular Carcinogenesis.

Speech Title: Understanding the Tumor Microenvironment and Tumor Heterogeneity for Precision Medicine in Ovarian Cancer

Abstract: Ovarian cancer is inherently silent; most patients are diagnosed in late stage of the disease progression. The progression and resistance to chemotherapy in ovarian cancer patients is closely associated with the tumor microenvironment and tumor heterogeneity. Recent advances in tumor biology, especially in the areas of genetics led us to the era of precision medicine. Precision medicine aims to personalize the treatment based on individual variability in genes, environment and as well as lifestyle. Understanding the tumor microenvironment and tumor heterogeneity is critical to overcome chemoresistance in ovarian cancer. Here, we provide an overview of the role of ascites tumor microenvironment in ovarian cancer progression, in terms of modulating cancer cell behavior and contributing to tumoral heterogeneity in ovarian cancer.

Speech Title: Combating Oxidative Stress with Natural Products

Abstract: Atherosclerosis and diabetes mellitus are the two leading diseases in the world which involve oxidative stress. In both these diseases, there is generation of free radicals which causes organ damage. There is a constant quest to try various natural products which may revert the changes or even lessen the damage caused in various organs i.e. blood vessels, kidney and liver. The natural products act as powerful antioxidants. The usage of various natural products also does not cause any significant side effects, and they cheap and easy to obtain. Over the past one decade, various natural products were tried and tested on experimental animals in our laboratory for the effective treatment of atherosclerosis and diabetes mellitus. The histological (light and electron microscopic findings) and biochemical (antioxidant enzyme level) evidence gathered with respect to the potential antioxidant properties of few herbal extracts are being thoroughly discussed. The interesting results open the door for future clinical trials which may prove to be beneficial for the treatment of diabetes mellitus and atherosclerosis and its complications.
