David Lee
PhD

Dr. Lee is an associate professor at Harvard Medical School and the Director of the Bioorganic and Natural Products Laboratory at McLean Hospital. He completed his Ph.D. degree in Natural Products Chemistry at Columbia University. Dr. Lee has worked on numerous projects in drug discovery and development related to traditional Chinese medicine. He and his team isolated a potent topoisomerase I inhibitor (NPI-BC-4) from Boswelliacaterii, a traditional medicine used in the treatment of inflammatory diseases in India and China without overt toxicity. A preliminary clinical trial of NPI-BC-4 in Germany showed excellent results in patients with brain tumors. Because of its specific activity against CNS (SP-295) and prostate cancer cell lines (DU-145 and PC-3), NPI-BC-4 is also being developed as a potential non-hormonal therapy for advanced prostate cancer and for early intervention, including benign prostate hyperplasia. Dr. Lee has contributed significantly to the development of alternative therapies for substances abuse. He is the principal investigator on a program project grant funded by the National Institutes of Health entitled “Alternative Therapies for Alcohol and Drug Abuse.” Under this program, several isoflavone glycosides have been identified and assessed in animal models of alcoholism. Because of their favorable toxicity profile in comparison with naltrexone, an FDA approved drug, and their suppression of alcohol drinking in alcohol preferring rats, these isoflavone glycosides stand a good chance of development for the treatment of alcoholism. Dr. Lee is also serving as Co-PI on the development of the herbal remedy (HLXL) for osteoarthritis. Dr. Lee and his colleagues at McLean Hospital are also looking into natural remedies for depression, insomnia, and Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Lee received an institutional development award in 1985. He has published 100 papers and holds 15 U.S. and international patents. He is executive committee member of ACMES and associate editor of North American Journal of Medicine and Health.

Wendy Qiu

Wendy Qiu, MD, PhD: Dr.Qiu is an Associate Professor of Boston University School of Medicine, Departments of Psychiatry and Pharmacology & Experimental Therapeutics. Dr. Qiu’s research goal is to develop diagnostic tools and effective treatments for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other diseases in geriatric psychiatry.

Raymond Mak

Raymond Mak, M.D. Dr.Mak is the Instructor, Department of Radiation Oncology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, specialize in radiation therapy for lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies, and in stereotactic body radiation therapy for the management of early stage lung cancer. His research interests include developing clinically-applicable genetic predictors of response to radiation therapy in non-small cell lung cancer, with a focus on characterizing radiosensitivity based on tumor genotype and germline genetic analysis for prediction of increased risk of radiation-induced normal tissue toxicity.
