She has over 18 years of experience in clinical pharmacology research and extensive history of clinical collaboration with academia and pharmaceutical industry. She has obtained a PharmD from University of Mashhad Iran and a PhD from University of Sydney, Australia. She then has completed at Post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Sydney and another post doc at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom before joining URI in 2001. Her laboratory has developed and validated analytical methods for over 30 drugs and their metabolites.

Biography
  Research Interest :

she specializes in the use of semi-mechanistic pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics (PKPD) modeling in pre-clinical or clinical drug development. The goal of her research program is to improve the quality of use of medicines by the means of identifying sources of variation in dose-concentration and concentration-effect relationships. The three main objectives of this research include: (1) to understand the effect of diabetes mellitus and related conditions on the pharmacokinetics and activity of drug metabolizing enzymes and transporters. (2) To characterize the sources of variability in the pharmacokinetic and/or –dynamic (PKPD) of drugs in different patient populations and with respect to genetic polymorphism and (3) Development of novel drugs for treatment of alcoholism.

  Biography :

My primary research interest has been on innovative, multidisciplinary and highly-complex projects focusing on medicinal chemistry-driven drug design and delivery into the central nervous system. These activities have been conducted in successful and productive research collaborations with Laszlo Prokai, Ph.D., D.Sc, with translational medicine, and drug discovery in mind. Our projects involve pharmacokinetics, metabolism and drug distribution studies in early-phase drug discovery and the development of neuroactive/neuroprotective agents. We design and synthesize complex organic and peptide-based (pro)drug leads, and employ in silico predictions of physicochemical parameters important to select lead compounds for preclinical assessments, as well as biopharmaceutical analyses together with various neurochemical/pharmacological paradigms useful for monitoring of central delivery of agents.

She started her scientific and didactic career as Assistant Professor 1984-2000 and from 2000-2008 she has been Associate Professor at the University of Calabria, Italy. Then, in 2011 she became Full Professor of Clinical Pathology at the same University. In the 90's she was awarded fellowships at the Dept. of Rheumathology, Gent, Belgium and at the University of Utrecht, The Netherlands, then in 2003 she was visiting Professor at the “Kimmel Cancer Center“ , Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia (U.S.A.). These first scientific experiences abroad have been particularly relevant and training. In European laboratories she began working on cell cultures and on the methods for the isolation of cells from tissues. The methodological skills learned were crucial because they allowed her to open the laboratory section of the cell culture at the Dept. of Cell Biology, University of Calabria. From this, began her studies on the behavior of transformed cells in vitro. Professor Panno, at the beginning, has mainly carried out experimental and clinical research in the endocrinology of reproduction, then she has focused the attention on the endocrine –related oncology. The research interest has been directed to functional interaction between transduction pathway of growth factor receptors and estrogen receptor in breast cancer cells and, over the years, she became interested to anti-cancer effects of natural molecules (psoralen , resveratrol and epigallocatechin gallate). Other topics of interest have been reported on her C.V. Professor Panno is co-author of several full papers and her research issues were hosted at many international and national conferences. For its teaching and research experience she has been, and continues to be mentor to many graduate students and post-docs. Currently she is the coordinator of a degree program in “Scientific Information of the Drug and Health Products” Dept. of Pharmacy, Health and Nutritional Sciences, University of Calabria, Cosenza, Italy.

Former Professor & Head
Department of Chemistry
University of Lucknow

  Biography :

Since 1976, I have been actively engaged in Bio-organic chemistry & pharmaceutical development research. We have made significant contributions in the fascinating area of alkaloid and alkaloid biosynthesis. During the course of work a number of biologically active alkaloids have been isolated from Indian medicinal plants. I have traced the biosynthetic pathways, in living plants, of proaporphines, normal and abnormal aporphines, tetrahydroprotoberberines, 1-benzylisoquino-lines, bisbenzylisoquinolines, aporphine-benzylisoqinolines, biphenylbisbenzylisoquinolines, morphinandienone, abnormal Erythrina, quaternary aporphines, dibenz [d,f] azonine bases, ipecac--carbolines, phthaldeisoquinolines, spirobenzylisoquinolines, morphine alkaloids and aristolochic acid. Using labeled enantiomeric precursors, I have demonstrated the stereospecificity of enzyme reactions in biosynthesis and introduced a novel method for determining the absolute configuration of biphenylbisbenzylisoquinolines and tetrahydroprotoberberine alkaloids. Very little is known about the potentiality of higher plants to carry out transformations of organic molecules, which they do not normally produce. This area of research is relatively unexplored in higher plants. Therefore, it was decided to carry out the biotransformations of unnatural 1-benzyl-isoquinolines into unnatural aporphines, papaverines and tetrahydroprotoberberines. The results indicated that many enzymes in plants are non-specific and are able to catalyse the biosynthesis of unnatural alkaloids from unnatural precursors. We have recently carried out the biosynthetic studies in cell-free extract from plants to overcome the permeability barrier that exists within and between the cells. The results demonstrated the superiority of using cell-free extract over the feeding techniques in intact living plants. A high yield conversion of many precursors into the natural products has been achieved. We have carried out work on a project on biosynthesis of Biologically active compounds of Neem funded by DST, New Delhi. Several meliacines have been isolated and the cell free synthesis of an antkifeedant compound nimbine has been carried out. There are some common chemical reactions that occur both in plants and animals. We have demonstrated the transformations of 1-benzyltetrahydroisoquinoline into abnormal Erythrina, aporphines and tetrahydroprotoberberine alkaloids in cell- free homogenate obtained from animal tissues. We have developed a novel reagent for the synthesis of 2-acetoxyglycals. The sysnthesis of some nucleosides with their biological properties have been done. We have isolated and synthesize a number of compounds from marine animals with antimplantation activity. Recently we have studied the antioxidant activity of various Indian plants with the identification of biologically active compounds. Phytochemical investigation of essential oil containing plants has also been done with evaluation of biological activity. Modern spectroscopic techniques such as FT NMR , Mass, Radiation counter, ultracentrifugation. etc. were used for these studies. The results of the above studies have been published in journals of International repute.
