Department:Department of Biomedical Sciences and Disease
University:New England College of Optometry
Koevary earned a Ph.D in Biomedical Sciences from the City University of New York, New York. He is currently Chairman and Professor of Department of Biomedical Sciences and Disease at New England College of Optometry, USA. He has received several professional awards. Most of his work is patented. He is an active member of many societies. He attended many international conferences. He published articles in many national and international journals.
Focus of his research in recent years has been in the examination of the efficacy of using topically applied drugs to treat diseases of the posterior segment of the eye,developing a methodology for the delivery of monoclonal antibodies and neurotrophic factors to the retina for the treatment of macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. More recently, he shifted gears towards the examination of ways of preventing tumour cell growth using various compounds including rose bengal and amniotic fluid-derived stem cells in ovarian cancer and retinoblastoma models.

Harish C. Pant
Senior Investigator, USA
Harish C. Pant
University/Institute:National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
Dr. Pant received his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from Agra University, Agra, India. His postdoctoral studies were conducted on the mechanisms of electron and ion transport in model membrane systems at the Department of Biophysics at Michigan State University. He joined the Laboratory of Neurobiology in the NIMH as a senior staff fellow in 1974 with Dr. Ichiji Tasaki where he studied the function of the axonal cytoskeleton in the squid giant axon. In 1979 he moved to the NIAAA extending his studies on the neuronal cytoskeleton and the effects of alcohol on its regulation. Dr. Pant moved to the NINDS, Laboratory of Neurochemistry in 1987 where he is presently chief of the section on Cytoskeleton Regulation. His laboratory is studying the mechanisms of topographic regulation of neuronal cytoskeleton proteins by post-translational modification, including the role of kinase cascades in normal brain and during neurodegeneration.
His research interest mainly focuses on Cytoskeleton Regulation, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer’s Diseases and Neurodegenerative disorders.
