      Dr. Mishra is a an MD-PhD with expertise in stroke medicine. After earning his medical doctor degree in 2005, he trained in behavioral neurology and stroke medicine at the University Hospital of Lausanne. He then went to the University of Glasgow to earn a PhD in medicine where among many clinical questions, he particularly tackled the question about the eligibility of stroke patients regarding reperfusion therapy in acute ischemic stroke patients. This was particularly about the exclusion criteria prescribed by the regulatory bodies for the use of t-PA. After earning the PhD in 2012, he moved to Stanford to study the use of perfusion imaging to select patients for endovascular stroke therapy. After about two-and-half years of post doctoral work at Stanford, Dr. Mishra spent some time at the US FDA and then moved on to do residency at Tulane. He enjoys both -- managing patients and conducting research.

    Department of Pharmacology, Brain Science & Engineering Institute, Kyungpook National University School of Medicine, Daegu, Korea.
    • Biography

      Dr. Kyoungho Suk is currently a professor of Department of Pharmacology, Kyungpook National University (KNU) School of Medicine (Daegu, Korea), and the director of Brain Science & Engineering Institute of KNU. He obtained his Ph.D. in Immunology at University of California at Davis in 1994, and M.S. degree in Immunology at Cornell University in 1991. He graduated from KNU with the genetic engineering major in 1989. Dr. Suk received his postdoctoral training in the division of Rheumatology, Yale University School of Medicine, and he has been a visiting professor at Harvard Medical School between 2008 and 2009, during which he participated in large-scale experiments and systems biology approaches toward understanding of disease networks and pathways. Dr. Suk is the author of more than 200 papers published in peer-reviewed journals and holds patents on various therapeutic targets and lead compounds that could be used for the diagnosis or therapy of neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases.
      For the past several years, Dr. Suk’s research focused on brain glial cells and neuroinflammation. Non-neuronal glial cells produce specific neurotransmitters and proteins under various physiological and pathological conditions to influence the survival and functions of neighboring neurons and glia in the central nervous system (CNS). Dr. Suk’s lab is interested in these proteins secreted from glial cells. A long-term goal of the lab is to identify and functionally characterize glial secretory proteins with respect to brain health and disease. Lipocalin-2, prostaglandin D2 synthase, and pentraxin-3 are a few examples of glial secretory proteins that the lab has been studying for several years. Dr. Suk’s findings based on in vitro and in vivo experiments as well as the analyses of clinical samples led to the discovery of potential biomarkers and drug targets for the acute CNS injuries and chronic disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and pathological pain. On-going works in the lab are now focused on the potential role of glial secretions in regulating the CNS functions from the physiological perspective. Glia-oriented omics approaches and large-scale experiments are also being employed to better understand a big picture of neuroinflammation and to uncover new drug targets for the devastating diseases in the CNS.

    • Biography

    • Expertise

      My research is focused on uncovering the molecular mechanisms that cause proteins (e.g. tau, synuclein, huntingtin) to misfold and aggregate in toxic forms, which are a typical pathological hallmark of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease (PD), Huntington’s disease (HD) and tauopathies. The protein misfolding process goes through intermediate aggregation states called oligomers which have been recently considered to be the true toxic species as they can spread through the brain, possibly seeding disease in a prion-like manner. As such, I am also interested in looking at whether/how the toxic oligomeric forms can trigger inflammation and disease progression, which in turn might open up new therapeutic approaches for neurodegenerative disorders such as PD, HD and tauopathies. I am involved in a collaboration with the NeuroStemCellRepair aimed to look at the pathology across the Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease brains using high-throughput technology platforms to identify new genetic modifiers involved in the pathophysiology of these disorders.
