LI Chapter: May Meeting

Speaker: John Kozinski, MEA - "Finding the Fountain of Youth in Your Diet and Lifestyle"

Abstract: Everyone wants to stay healthy and more youthful as we age. The key to reversing or slowing the aging process lies in understanding the human metabolism. As we get older, the metabolism slows. This results in signs of aging in our body, skin, hair, eyes, mind and sexual function.

The secret to healthy vibrant longevity is in keeping our metabolism high. John will explain how IDX, Integrative Diagnosis of the body, leads to choices in your environment, diet, lifestyle, exercise and body care that can create your own fountain of youth. Be prepared to learn some things about diet and lifestyle that are opposite popular notions.

Bio: John Kozinski, MEA is in private practice at macrobiotic.com. He is a pioneer natural health counselor, teacher, author and researcher since 1976 in the arts of holistic health care, natural healing, IDX Integrative Diagnosis, eastern and western healing arts, and alternative medicine with a current, progressive and integrated approach. John was a faculty member at the Kushi Institute in Massachusetts for 27 years until resigning for ethical reasons in 2013. He was director of a Connecticut macrobiotic center for 11 years. He has taught and counseled throughout the United States and Internationally. John works regularly in MA, CT, NJ, NYC, and Chicago. He is available for national or international engagements.

SCC National CEP Course - Utilizing Omics In Skin Care - Simplifies

Registration Link: CLICK HERE

Course Location: Philadelphia, PA

Dr. Nava Dayan LLC - Organizer and Moderator
Speakers: Rebecca Gadberry, Matt Kuruc and Tracy Shafizadeh, Ph.D.

“Omics” is a general term to the collection, characterization, structure-function relationships delving into the pools of biological markers and studying their behavior.

Our skin; as a compartmentalized organ connecting between the environment and our bodies is responsible for countless reactions managed concurrently responsible for functions such as regeneration, innate and acquired immunization, physical, chemical and biological protection, sensation and overall behavior.

In recent decade’s newest discoveries and methodologies gave rise to an exciting field that allows acquiring information in understanding of biochemical cascades and their relationships to health, disease and aging. From genomics that is observing changes in DNA and its expressions, through proteomics that is further analyzing proteins levels and their functions to metabolomics that is studying the entire metabolites assembly under specific conditions including the set of epigenetic markers.

This whole day workshop is aimed to bring experts in the field to present this research in a simple, practical manner and relate it to skin care product development.

9:00-10:15
Nava Dayan Ph.D.; President; Dr. Nava Dayan L.L.C- Genomics vs Proteomics – Advantages and Limitations
•Gene expression- techniques and interpretation
•Protein expression – advancements
•Case studies:
-Sunscreens efficacy
-Elastin

The Epigenome: Master of the Genome
Rebecca Gadberry, Senior Instructor & Program Director, Cosmetic Sciences, Department of Humanities, Sciences, Social Sciences and Health Sciences, UCLA Extension

UV, diet, drugs, tobacco, alcohol, ecotoxicants, emotional stress, exercise and cosmetic ingredients are among a number of factors now being proven to trigger chemical influences on gene expression without changing the genes themselves. Known as the “epigenome” – the master of the genome – these changes in genetic expression can occur in seconds, yielding positive or negative impact on the organism – activating stem cells, up-regulating the production of such proteins as sirtuins and collagens, building muscle, triggering diseases like cancer and diabetes and initiating cellular aging. This TED®-style presentation – that received the Henry Maso Award from the National Society of Cosmetic Chemists in 2014 – will:
•Offer a simplified discussion of the epigenome as it relates to genomics and proteomics.
•Review the two most common types of epigenetic mechanisms – methyl groups and histone modification.
•Provide insight into FDA’s current position on epigenetic claims.
•Present several ingredients believed to function via epigenetic mechanisms.
•Discuss the implications of this emerging and exciting field of research for the cosmetic chemist.

About the Instructor:
Rebecca Gadberry is a dynamic, highly acclaimed educator and forty-year veteran of the cosmetics industry. Senior instructor and program director for the Cosmetic Sciences program at UCLA Extension since 1986, Rebecca has developed over 1300 skin, hair and body care products sold in the professional, medical, on-air, direct and natural product channels for indie, niche, established and start-up brands sold nationally and globally.

Her chapter, Epigenetic Gene Regulation: A Path to Maintaining the “Processes of Youth?” in the 9th edition of Harry’s Cosmeticology, is the first of its kind to be published in the field of cosmetic science.

12:00-1:30 Lunch break

1:30-2:45
Matt Kuruc Vice President of Business Development at Biotech Support Group - New Functional & Chemical Proteomics Methods and Strategies

Functional proteomics supports the characterization of proteomes derived in part from functional orstructural features of intact, non-denatured proteins, rather than by differential expression alone. Biotech Support Group has developed surface chemistries and separations strategies to untangle proteome complexity without compromising protein functional integrity. We present key applications for these functional and chemical proteomic strategies.

About the Instructor:
Mr. Kuruc is the Vice President of Business Development at Biotech Support Group. He supports academic and commercial partnerships in addition to sales and marketing of a catalog of consumable research products.

Tracy Shafizadeh, PhD, Associate Director, Lipomics Services, Metabolon

Exploring the Metabolome Effectively to Advance Skincare Research

The architecture of human skin is complex and each layer possesses a metabolic signature with a unique composition and function. Metabolomic analysis of skin elucidates biochemical changes associated with and is crucial to understanding various skin conditions, i.e. acne, atopic dermatitis and aging. Global and focused metabolomic assessment of sebum, stratum corneum, skin biopsy, cell culture and reconstructed skin models allows us to understand the unique biochemical composition and regulation of the skin metabolome and provides insight into biomarker identification, response to intervention, and the development of therapeutic and skin care products across a variety of skin conditions.

About the Instructor:
Tracy Shafizadeh serves as Associate Director of Lipomics Services, a division of Metabolon. For the past 10 years, Dr. Shafizadeh has been working in the areas of personalized medicine and diagnostic development, specifically focused on the role of nutrition and metabolism in cardio-metabolic disease. Working closely with collaborators in skincare research, Tracy has been integral to advancing metabolomics applications to understanding skin biology. Prior to joining Metabolon, Dr. Shafizadeh served as Product Development Manager at Tethys Bioscience, Scientific Alliance Manager at Lipomics Technologies and numerous consulting roles for the nutrition and AgTech sectors. Dr. Shafizadeh received her Ph.D. in Nutritional Biology from the University of California, Davis.

NY Chapter: THE SAFETY IN REGULATORY FRAMEWORK OF THE COSMETIC INDUSTRY: SIMPLIFIED AND PRACTICAL

Program Overview:
The Cosmetics and Personal Care Industry has gone through major changes in the past several decades. Regulators are in the process of a framework establishment to outline guidance for the protection of the consumer and the environment. There are three key factors for compliance: ethics, law, and science; combined to establish a launch to the marketplace. This workshop is put together with the aim of providing industry professionals with knowledge and basic guidance to this established framework in safety assessment and to examine the limitations and opportunities. We believe that new market regulation should not be looked upon as a hindrance for market entrance, but rather as an opportunity to enter it!
