Understanding the Mechanisms of Cell Death–Health, Disease and Aging

  October 07, 2010  
CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, 90 Minute Accredited Online Training
November 23, 2010 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (ET)

Who Should Attend
This online training is intended for professionals in the pharmaceuticals, healthcare, cosmetic and personal care or related industries that work and specialize in the following disciplines, as well as groups or companies that provide services in skin care in the following fields:

  • Research and Development 
  • Regulatory Affairs
  • Safety Assessment 
  • Product Development
  • Formulations Development

As we age more and more cells in our body enter a stage called senescence. This is a stage in which while the cell is alive and metabolizing, it can no longer reproduce. This is a one way process that leads to cell death. Many of the organs in our body renew themselves constantly and therefore cells need to die in order to leave room for new cells. Examples are our skin, uterus and GI tract. Many of the disorders that we experience are associated with either accelerated or delayed cell death.

This 90-minute introductory course will go through the reasons and mechanisms of cell death, identification and measurement methods, related disorder and aging.

Module 1:
  • Mechanisms of cell death
    – Apoptosis
    – Necrosis
    – Pyroptosis
  • Cell senescence
  • Assessment of cell viability

Module 2:
  • Effects on the DNA - chromosomal aberrations and micronuclei formation
  • Disorders that are expressed by accelerated cell death
    – Skin
    – Internal organs
    – Brain

Module 3:
  • Cell death and aging
    – Inflammation
    – Effect of life style

Question and Answer Session

Organized by: CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers: Dr. Nava Dayan, Skin Care Research Expert

Dr. Nava Dayan earned her Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem specializing in skin delivery. She is currently an Associate Adjunct Professor in the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at Rutgers University, and the R&D Director at Lipo Chemicals Inc. During her 23 years of experience she has specialized in a variety of areas related to skin treatment:

  • The research and understanding of the interaction between topically applied compounds and
    the skin
  • Findings in skin biochemistry and especially the upper layer of the skin- the stratum 
  • Delivery of active compounds into and through the skin and the development of delivery 
    systems to facilitate transport, improve bio-availability and reduce toxicity
  • Design and development of topically applied formulations
  • Design of clinical studies to substantiate market claims and to assure safety
  • Academic teaching and lecturing
  • Industrial experience in both development of active compounds, delivery systems and 
    finished formulations
  • Skin absorption studies in vivo and in vitro for safety/ efficacy assessment
  • In vitro methodologies for safety assessment of topically applied compounds

Dr. Dayan has received numerous awards of excellence for various papers she has authored. She is the author and coauthor of more than 100 publications including book chapters and was granted 7 patents. She is also the editor of the “Skin Aging Hand Book” published by Elsevier. Dr. Dayan is a member of the Dermatopharmaceutics Focus Group, and the Abstract Review Committee for the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS). She is serves as the Educational Chair of the NYSCC Chapter and on the Scientific Advisory Board of Health Beauty America Expo. Dr. Dayan teaches at Rutgers University and is the Director of a variety of courses at the Center for Professional Advancement.
