more info
Dr. John Longhurst is a Professor in the Department of Medicine, with joint appointments in the Departments of Physiology and Biophysics, Pharmacology and Biomedical Engineering at the University of California, Irvine. He holds two endowed chairs. In 1999 he worked with the Samueli Family to endow a center for integrative medicine at the university. In 2003 he became the director of the Susan Samueli Center for Integrative Medicine. The mission of the center is to conduct rigorous fundamental research, teach students and residents, faculty, staff and practitioners and provide clinical care in integrative medicine. Dr. Longhurst was the first student to receive his MD and his PhD at the University of California at Davis in 1973 and 1974, respectively. He then completed his internship and residency at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston and subsequently his cardiology fellowship at the University of Texas, Southwestern, Medical School in Dallas. He has been on the faculty at the University of California since 1982, including time spent at UC San Diego, UC Davis and most recently at UC Irvine. His research interest is in integrative physiology, particularly focusing on peripheral and autonomic regulation of the cardiovascular system. For the last decade he has studied the central autonomic regulation by electroacupuncture. He has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health since 1978 and currently has three R01 grants from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, two of which are focused on acupuncture regulation of cardiovascular function. His third grant is on mechanisms of activation of cardiac sensory nerves and central neural processing during myocardial ischemia. He holds an additional grant from the Adolph Coors Foundation to study the role of electroacupuncture in treatment of patients with hypertension. He has published over 180 original communications and 50 review articles and chapters.

Prof. Kwang-Sup Soh
Seoul National University, Korea
Title Adrenalin and Noradrenalin Flow in Primo Vessel
Related Session Pharmacopuncture
more info
Professor Kwang-Sup Soh is currently a Director of the Nano Primo Research Center, Advanced Institute of Convergence Technology, Seoul National University since March of 2011. He was a Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Seoul National University from 1979 to 2011, where he led the Biomedical Physics Laboratory. Currently he is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Acupuncture Meridian Studies (JAMS).
Professor Soh has authored or co-authored more than 50 journal papers on primo vascular system (PVS) and made numerous invited lectures nationally and internationally. Professor Soh began his research on the PVS which was first discovered by Dr Bong-Han Kim who reported to have discovered the anatomical structures corresponding to acupuncture meridians. Dr. Soh’s initiative in the rediscovery of the PVS led to many following researches in Korea and the first international conference named “The International Symposium on the Primo Vascular System” held in 2010 in Korea. He was the editor of the conference book “The Primo Vascular System, its role in Cancer and Regeneration” published by Springer in 2011. His current research is focused on making the atlas of the PVS in brain which will eventually lead to a revolution in brain science and paradigm shift in diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases

Prof. Rainer Spanagel
Mannheim University, Germany
Title Treatment options for addiction behaviour: From Eastern to Western Medicine
Related Session Acupuncture and drugs and neuroendocrine regulation
more info
Professor Spanagel studied biology at the Universities of Tübingen and Munich and pursued his early training in behavioural pharmacology and neurochemistry at the Max Planck Institute in Martinsried. During his PhD work, he discovered the regulation of the brain reinforcement system by the endogenous opioid system. This work was critical for understanding reward processing and has become a citation classic. In 1990, Professor Spanagel moved to the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry in Munich to apply his accumulated knowledge to addiction research. In 1995, he became head of the alcohol research group there and was awarded a lectureship in Pharmacology and Toxicology. In the beginning of 2000, he relocated to the Central Institute of Mental Health in Mannheim, a leading European institution for biological psychiatry, to become director of the Institute of Psychopharmacology.
During his career, Professor Spanagel has been awarded many scientific prizes, most notably the Sir Hans Krebs Award for his seminal gene x environment study in rodents published in Science (2002), and the James B. Isaacson Award he received in 2008 for his continuing achievements in alcohol research. He is one of the first researchers to establish and employ animal models of addictive behaviour to characterize several new compounds that have gone into phase II testing for alcohol dependence. His discovery of the involvement of clock genes in drug-related behaviours was crucial for formulating a new theory of addiction. Professor Spanagel has published more than 190 peer-reviewed original articles, many of them in high-ranking journals. He is Editor-in-Chief of In Silico Pharmacology and Addiction Biology. Professor Spanagel is a member of many editorial boards (e.g. Addiction, ACER, Behavioral Brain Research) and an executive member of several societies in the psychiatric field (SSA, ECNP, ISBRA, ECNP), and is currently coordinating the German research network on Genetics of Alcoholism (NGFN).
