Day 1 :
Gaia Holistic Health USA and Japan
Graduated from Toho Academy of Music in Tokyo, as a pianist and composer, invited by the Boston Symphony, she came to the USA in 1961 as one of the first Japanese women. She then received Master of Art from New York University and finished her Ph.D. credits in Philosophy in 1965. In 1967, Tatsumura then turned to an independent career and became the top International Classical and Cultural Impresario/producer. Until 1992, she produced an average of 2,000 cultural events each year, traveling to more than 140 countries. She was presented with numerous honors for her work. She studied Oriental Traditional Medicine of Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China. In 2,000 she received her PHD and OMD from the International Academy of Education in Tokyo. She established the Oki-Do Holistic Health Center in 1994 in NY and in 2001 the GAIA Holistic Center (501C3 nonprofit organization)at the wake of 9/11 tragedy, for body mind and spirit, aiming for the noninvasive natural healing methods based on the wisdom of the East. Dr. Kazuko Tatsumura has written numerous articles and several books: FE “Overcoming Cancer and Other Diseases in a Holistic Way”, “Your Immune Revolution & Healing Your Healing Power “(with Toru Abo, M.D.) Dr. Kazuko has been invited as a speaker at World Congresses of Holistic Health. She teaches and lectures all over the world. She has received many honors from different countries, many for humanitarian causes. She is well known as a philanthropist.
Onnetsu means comfortable heat. Dr Kazuko Onnetsu Therapy invented by Dr. Kazuko Tatsumura Hillyer emits from a special ceramic; 1) precise 8-10 micron of vibration of infrared SunRay, 2) vibration of Terahertz and 3) various degrees of heat. When Onnetsuki is slid over the skin, healthy areas are comfortable, but if deep tissue which is cold unhealthy or degenerated “hot spot” is detected by the temperature sensation reported by the patient. Dr Kazuko Onnetsu Therapy is both a diagnostic and therapeutic. When this hot spot is effectively treated with far-infrared, terahertz and heat, Dr Kazuko Onnetsu Therapy, the hot sensation subsides, and the disease conditions improve. Dr Kazuko’s protocol must be followed. Dr Kazuko Onnetsu Therapy is based on four historical and scientific facts: 1. NASA's finding regarding far-infrared vibration from sun light is 8-10 micron only. Also, added is the specific Terahertz vibration: Healing vibration; 2. Traditional Japanese Concept of the significance of Body Temperature; Raising Cold Temperature; 3. Immunology Theory by Dr Toru Abo, balancing autonomic nervous system to improve condition of white cells; Raising Immunity; 4. Promoting four flows of energy through acupuncture technique: blood, body fluid, Oxygen, Ki (Chi). Dr Kazuko has taught her Onnetsu Therapy to MDs and health practitioners over the past decades all over the world have been practicing it in the hospitals and clinics. Clinical Trials have shown improvements on cases (including but not limited to) as arthritis, asthma, various cancers, diabetes, tuberculosis and various painful conditions. Clinical studies from Cuba and Peru will be presented.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, USA
Dr. Shiaw-Yih (Phoebus) Lin is a tenured professor and Deputy Chair of Department of Systems Biology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Dr. Lin’s research efforts are focused within an overall theme of DNA damage response defects in cancer with the specific emphasis on systems and translational precision cancer therapy. Dr. Lin serves on editorial boards of ten international journals and has served on numerous grant review committees for NIH, DOD and other funding organizations both nationally and internationally.
Defects of DNA damage response are considered as a hallmark of human cancer. Deficiencies in these responses, particularly in repair of different damaged DNA are of tremendous importance in the etiology of human cancers and at the same time offer great opportunities for designing targeted therapeutic strategies. Based on transcriptome analysis, we have established gene signature that faithfully predicted the defect of homologous recombination repair (HRD), replication stress response defect (RSRD) and mismatch repair defect (MMRD) in cells. In addition, based on these signatures, we identified effective drugs that can target on cancer with these specific DNA repair defects. Our studies, therefore, provide a unique platform to develop personalized cancer therapy based on the unique deficiency of DNA repair in the individual cancer.
