Dr. Fionda graduated in Medicine and Surgery and subsequently specialized in Radiotherapy at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Rome. He started working in 2016 at Gemelli-ART (Advanced Radiation Therapy) in Rome dealing with special techniques, such as Surface Guided Radiotherapy (SGRT) which uses specific light sources to monitor the patient’s surface during therapy. Dr. Fionda worked with the first hybrid machine installed in Italy that combines modern linear accelerators (LINAC) with the acquisition of magnetic resonance images allowing to follow the movement of the internal organs in real time. He has also gained long experience in interventional radiotherapy (brachytherapy) with both high dose rate (HDR) and pulsed dose rate (PDR).
Dr Fionda is a member of the Italian Association of Radiotherapy and Clinical Oncology (AIRO) and of the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO). He is the author of over 100 publications including conference abstracts and research articles on national and international journals, and is adjunct Professor of Radiation Oncology at Saint Camilus International University of Healh Sciences.

Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Research in Physiological Optics and Vision Science
Prof. Frishman received her undergraduate degree from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie N.Y. and her MS and PhD in psychology from the University of Pittsburgh. She did postdoctoral training in visual neuroscience at Northwestern University and the University of California San Francisco where she also was a research faculty member. She joined the Optometry faculty in the College of Optometry in 1990, and she has taught in both the professional and graduate programs. Her research has focused on refining noninvasive electrophysiological approaches for evaluating retinal and anterior visual pathway function in normal subjects and subjects with inherited or acquired diseases that affect visual function.
Academic Editor for PLOS ONE and PeerJ, and she was Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Visual Neuroscience (2001-2007), and Documenta Ophthalmologica (2006-2013).
She has served on federal grant review panels, the NIH/NEI National Advisory Eye Council, and she is a fellow of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (FARVO), American Academy of Optometry (FAAO) and a board member of the International Society for the Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV).
Prof. Fanglin Guan is Dean at Xi'an Jiaotong University. He is engaged in the integrated biological research of complex diseases, including tumor microenvironment and novel immunotherapeutic modalities, and research on the mechanisms and medical applications related to tumor cell vaccines, especially for the exploration of the mechanism of determining the biomarkers of complex diseases.
Dr. He obtained her Ph.D. degree from a joint Ph.D. program in Jilin University and University of California, San Diego under Prof. Shu Chien which is the Academician of National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and American Academy of Arts and Sciences of US. Dr. He then worked in Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in the United States, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China. In 2019, Dr. He joined the Center for Single-Cell Omics in Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine as the core director of the genomics core.
Dr. He’s research focused on developing more sophisticated technology of single-cell multiple-omics analysis, using systems biology strategies to elucidate the underlying mechanism of major diseases, especially oncology and discover novel biomarkers, and AI Drug Screening. As of June. 2022, Dr. He has authored 60 high-quality scholarly articles including 25 first-authored and correspondence author papers, which have been extensively cited. Also, Dr. He has filed 15 patents. Also, she has been awarded research grants and awards from National Natural Science Foundation, China Postdoctoral Science Special Foundation, and so on. Dr. He was invited to contribute review articles by highly influential research journals in her field and give oral presentations at national and international conferences. Dr. He also serves as an article reviewer of numerous notable international journals.
