With an initial professional emphasis on reproductive physiology and endocrinology, Clayton holds a patent for a substance and process for disturbing the inheritance pattern of ion channelopathic disorders. He served as the Director of Clinical Research and Development for a small biotech company working to bring improved assisted reproductive technologies to market. Clayton serendipitously received glucose clamping training from a leading authority on diabetes who was, at the time, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. This led Clayton to refocus his research interests on metabolic disturbances related to diabetes and obesity and early clinical research models that offer predictive signals of safety or efficacy. These empower better decision making earlier in the drug development process.Clayton hasheld executive positions at global contract research organizationsleading some of the most robust, large-scale, therapeutically focused, early phase clinical research programs.

When I arrived in Nashville (2008), my appointment was as an Associate Professor (T-T) in the Department of Ob/Gyn at Meharry Medical College; I was also a member of the Center for Women's Health Research (CWHR). In 2011, my primary appointment moved to the Department of Physiology because of my strong background in physiology, but I maintained my status as an active member of the CWHR. In 2012, I was given a secondary appointment in the School of Dentistry (SOD) and the title of Chairman, Oral Biology and Research. Since I organized a SOD course on 'Introduction to Clinical Research' and continue to foster collaborative faculty and student research projects. Recently, in Fall 2013 we have introduced 'Biomedical Integration Seminar Course' to Freshman Dental Students. This course will allow the students not only to learn how to integrate basic sciences into their dental clinical approach and patient care but also will help them to understand on how poor oral health can cause systemic diseases. For the past several years, I have been providing research training to post-doctoral fellows, research technicians, and junior faculty, and residents, medical and dental students. I have been funded with NIH and institutional grants as a PI or Co-Inv for the past 15 years. Research interests include Endocrinology, Gastrointestinal motility, Reproductive Physiology, Oral Bioloy and its relationship with systemic health, Menopause related health problems, Cell Biology, Diabetes & Obesity associated health complications.

His work in the field of metabolic syndrome was on the effect of pioglitazone on adipose tissue, prevention of carotid intima thickness and adiponectin; diabetogenesis in HIV infected patient on Protease Inhibitors, predictive value of hyperglycemia post stem cell transplantation and development of acute GVHD and recently a first case report of detection of DNA of adenovirus- 36 in adipose tissue of a patient with unusual obesity as a possible promoter of this obesity. Other area of his interest is Islet Cells Transplantation and as an endocrinologist member of Islets cell transplantation team at city of Hope I am studying the role of thrombomodulin on early graft loss after the islet transplantation.

Dr. Lakshman Segar is an Associate Professor in the Department of Clinical and Administrative Pharmacy, University of Georgia College of Pharmacy, USA. The research projects in his laboratory are focused on dysregulated metabolic and signaling pathways that contribute to exaggerated vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation in the context of atherosclerosis and restenosis after angioplasty. Using human aortic VSMCs in culture, his research team investigates how altered glucose metabolism regulates key proliferative signaling pathways. In conjunction with these studies, they also examine the roles of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and PI 3-kinase/Akt signaling toward VSMC phenotypic changes. In vivo studies utilize a mouse model of arterial injury to investigate how insulin resistance and altered glucose metabolism contribute to exaggerated neointima formation. Furthermore, in vitro and in vivo studies investigate the vasoprotective effects of antidiabetic drugs including metformin, pioglitazone, and incretins.

I was promoted to Assistant Professor in 2010 at Department of Physiology & Biophysics, University of Louisville. I joined Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology, University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), Omaha in the year 2013. My major interest is to understand the mechanism of structural and functional cardiac remodeling in diabetics with the goal to develop intervention tool. Recently, miRNAs have emerged as biomarker and therapeutic target for cardiovascular and other diseases. My research work focuses on finding the candidate miRNAs involved in heart failure especially diabetic cardiomyopathy and using them for ameliorating cardiac dysfunction. Additionally, we are also investigating the role of MMP9, beta2-adrenergic receptors, hydrogen sulfide and homocysteine on miRNA regulation, extracellular matrix remodeling, impaired contractility of cardiomyocytes and heart failure using in vivo, ex-vivo and in vitro approaches. The role of miR-133 as epi-miR, and regulator of cardiac autophagy, and impact of ablation of MMP9 on stem cell survival and differentiation are two new promising areas we are currently pursuing to dissect the mechanism of heart failure at different level. I have been funded with American Heart Association, Beginning-Grant-in-Aid from 2011-13. Currently, I have NIH, RO1 grants.

Cathryn Kolka obtained her PhD at the University of Tasmania in Australia, with a focus on glucose uptake in skeletal muscle, including the transport of glucose across the endothelial barrier, the effect of exercise on glucose metabolism, and the hemodynamic effects of insulin and other hormones. After completing her post-doctoral training at University of Southern California, she is now an assistant professor in the Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Her current focus is the access of insulin to the skeletal muscle interstitium in health and disease, and is interested in targets and treatments that may augment this access and thus help to treat insulin resistance. This can include aspects of muscle perfusion, cellular insulin sensitivity in vivo, and endothelial function in muscle and other tissues. The concept that manipulating the vascular system can treat metabolic disease forms the basis of her studies.
