Keynote Speakers

Prof. Helmut Zarbl
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA

 

Dr. Helmut Zarbl has more than 32 years of research experience focused on understanding molecular mechanisms of toxicity, mutagenesis, carcinogenesis, toxicogenomics, as well as epigenetic and genetic mechanisms of disease susceptibility and chemoprevention. He received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from McGill University in 1983, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Mariano Barbacid at the National Cancer Institute (NIH). He subsequently did a postdoctoral research with Dr. Paul Jolicoeur at the Clinical Research Institute of Montreal. He began his academic career at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), in 1987, where he rose to the rank of Associate Professor and became the Deputy Director of their Environmental Health Sciences Center.  In 1994, he joined the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC) in Seattle, WA, where he established, designed, staffed and directed the FHCRC’s Genomics facility. He also served as the Director of Core Laboratories operated by the FHCRC Division of Public Health Sciences (PHS). He founded and served as the Director of the NIEHS Sponsored University of Washington/FHCRC Toxicogenomics Research Consortium, serving as the Director of the National Steering committee for two years.

In 2007 Dr. Zarbl joined the Department of Environmental and Occupational Medicine at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School at Rutgers, where he assumed the Directorship of the NIEHS funded Center for Environmental Exposures and Disease. He also served as the Associate Director for Public Health Sciences at the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey from 2008-2013. He is currently Professor of Environmental and Occupational Health in the Rutgers School of Public Health.  He serves on national and international grant review panels, as well as scientific advisory boards to numerous university, non-profit and government agencies. He is a member of the USA National Academies, NRC Standing Committee on Emerging Science for Environmental Health Decisions.

Dr. Zarbl is also the founding President of GeneAsses, Inc., a joint university and industry partnership whose mission is to translate research on differential susceptibility to environmental carcinogenesis into new diagnostic and prognostic tests, and therapies.

 

Prof. Khaled M. Bali,
University of California, San Diego, USA

 

Prof. K. M. Bali is an Irrigation/Water Management Advisor and County Director at the University of California Desert Research and Extension Center in Holtville, California. He holds a Ph.D. Degree (1992) in Soil Science (soil physics) and MS Degree (1987) in Water Science (Irrigation and Drainage) from the University of California at Davis. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree (1984) in soils and irrigation from the University of Jordan, Amman.
His main fields of scientific interest include water resources and management, water quality, irrigation systems, automation of surface irrigation, evapotranspiration, salinity, water quality, and reuse of wastewater for irrigation.
Dr. Bali a member of many professional societies as American Geophysical Union and United States Committee on Irrigation and Drainage. He is a U.S. Fulbright Scholar and served on a number of National and International Scientific Committees.

About San Francisco

San Francisco is the cultural, commercial, and financial center of Northern California and the only consolidated city-county in California.San Francisco encompasses a land area of about 46.9 square miles on the northern end of the San Francisco Peninsula, which makes it the smallest county in the state. It has a density of about 18,187 people per square mile, making it the most densely settled large city (population greater than 200,000) in the state of California and the second-most densely populated major city in the United States after New York City. San Francisco is the fourth-most populous city in California, after Los Angeles, San Diego and San Jose, and the 13th-most populous city in the United States.

San Francisco is a popular tourist destination,known for its cool summers, fog, steep rolling hills, eclectic mix of architecture, and landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, the former Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary, and its Chinatown district.
