Keynote Speakers:

Hooman Farzaneh
Institute of Advanced Energy, Kyoto University, Japan


Topic: Sustainable Development and Mitigation in Asian Cities; Challenges and Opportunities

Dr. Hooman Farzaneh is currently lecturer at the Institute of Advanced Energy, Kyoto University, Japan (since 2015). He has expertise on a broad spectrum of issues related to quantitative and qualitative analysis focusing on developing research patterns of low carbon scenarios and policy implementations designed to tackle air pollution problems in regional and local scales. Before joining Kyoto University, Hooman worked as research fellow at the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability, Tokyo, Japan and has been involved in several research projects in relation to sustainable development and mitigation such as climate co-benefits approach in Asian Cities and transfer of low carbon technology to developing countries. Dr. Hooman has previously held positions as a member of the Global Center of Excellence (GCOE) program at Kyoto University (2012-2013) and also assistant professor at Azad University and Sharif Energy Research Institute (SERI) in Tehran, Iran (2007-2012). Born and educated in Iran, Hooman holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering and master’s and PhD degrees in energy system engineering. He has published over 40 journal and conference papers and numerous other reports (both public and confidential).

Paul C.H. Li., Ph.D.
Department of Chemistry, Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Simon Fraser University, Canada

Paul Li

Topic: The Use of Nanoparticles to Assist Cellular and Nucleic Acid Assays

Dr. Paul Li obtained his Ph.D in analytical chemistry at the University of Toronto in 1995. Then he developed the microfluidic lab-on-a-chip at the University of Alberta during his postdoctoral work. Dr. Li became assistant professor at City University of Hong Kong in 1996, and then he joined Simon Fraser University in 1999, and he was promoted to full professor in 2010. Dr. Li is interested in integrating microfluidics for single-cell analysis in order to study the transport kinetics of chemical compounds (from herbs) on individual cancer cells. This study is particularly useful for studying multidrug resistant cancer cells, leading to potential improvement in chemotherapy. He is also interested to combine microfluidics with the nucleic acid bioarray for detection of low volume and low concentration of fungal pathogenic DNA, Kras cancer gene DNA, and influenza viral RNA. Dr. Li has other research interests on immunoassay chip, C11 radiotracer synthesis, and F18 enrichment as well. He has published a monograph entitled “Fundamentals of lab on a chip for biological analysis and discovery” in 2010. He is associate editor of Canadian Journal of Pure and Applied Sciences, and sits on the editorial boards of Journal of Proteomics and Genomics, and Hong Kong Pharmaceutical Journal. Dr. Li is the inventor of 4 granted patents and 5 pending patents, and he is the founder and vice president of ZellChip Technologies Inc. specializing in microfluidic-based instruments for life science applications.
