Professor Young-Joon Surh is currently Director of Tumor Microenvironment Global Core Research Center, Seoul National University, Korea. He graduated from College of Pharmacy, Seoul National University with BS and MS, and earned a PhD degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Professor Surh then had postdoctoral training at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1992, he was appointed as Assistant Professor at Yale University School of Medicine. Since relocating to Seoul National University in 1996, Dr. Surh has been investigating the molecular mechanisms of cancer prevention with anti-inflammatory phytochemicals. He is currently Associate Editor of Molecular Carcinogenesis, Toxicology & Applied Pharmacology, and Free Radical Research, and Editorial Board member of Antioxidants & Redox Signaling, International Journal of Cancer, Mutation Research, Life Sciences, Food and Chemical Toxicology, Genes and Nutrition, Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, and more recently Precision Oncology published by Nature Publishing Group. Prof. Surh has published more than 280 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and about 70 invited editorials, reviews and book chapters. The total number of citations of his publications is more than 17,000 (excluding self-citations). He published a seminal review article, titled cancer chemoprevention with dietary phytochemicals, in Nature Reviews Cancer which has been cited more than 1,600 times. The H-Index reported by Thomson Reuter of Web Knowledge is 68. He received numerous awards including Elizabeth and James A. Miller Distinguished Scholar Award from Rutgers University, McCormic Science Institute Award from American Society for Nutrition (2009), and the Distinguished Scientist Award given by President of South Korea.

Dr Denis Barron is the head of the Natural Bioactives & Screening department at Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences (NIHS), Lausanne, Switzerland. He first studied Pharmacy at the Universities of Clermont-Ferrand and Grenoble. He obtained his PhD in 1987 from Concordia University (Montreal, Canada), where he worked on the phytochemical characterization, the chemical synthesis and the enzymatic synthesis of plant sulfated flavonoid. Then he entered the French institute of Agriculture (INRA) in Dijon as a research assistant in the field of aroma research. In 1989, he got an assistant professorship in Pharmacognosy at the school of Pharmacy of Grenoble (France), and developed a number of synthetic tools for the organic synthesis of isoprenoid flavonoids. In 1994, he was nominated full professor in plant biochemistry at University of Lyon (France). His research interest was oriented towards the discovery of natural inhibitors of cellular efflux pumps that are involved in chemoresistance and nutrient absorption such as P-glycoprotein and MRP. Dr Barron research activities, at the boarder of pharmacy and nutrition, gave him the opportunity to join Nestlé Research Center (NRC) in Lausanne in 2003. At NRC his research activities were oriented towards the human metabolism of dietary polyphenols, and towards the characterization of bioactive compounds from food ingredients. In 2012, he moved to NIHS. His current activities aim at identifying natural food products and extracts that are relevant in the prevention and the treatment of metabolic, brain, and gastro intestinal diseases.
