Theme: Telomere-Genomic Integrity in DNA Dam-Ageing and A Science-Technology-Society Approach in Teaching “Ageing”

Dr. M. Prakash Hande is an Associate Professor at the Department of Physiology, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, and he is currently the Assistant Dean, Safety and Research Facilities Management, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, NUS. He has published more than 160 peer-reviewed research articles with ~12200 citations in international journals such as Nature Genetics, Cell, Science, Genes and Development and PNAS, etc. (Scopus H-index: 53). His research interests are telomeres and telomerase in aging and cancer, experimental cancer therapeutics and biomarkers of radiation exposure. Dr. Hande is one of the pioneers who identified the role of DNA repair factors in telomere regulation in mammalian systems and is an expert in Radiation Biodosimetry. Dr. Hande teaches cancer biology and aging, Biomedicine and Society, Radiation and Society.  He holds adjunct professor appointments at the Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore, India and Mangalore University, Mangalore, India, and a visiting faculty at KIIT University, Bhubaneswar, India. Dr. Hande is a visiting scientist at the National Institute of Radiological Sciences, Chiba, Japan. He is the founding editor-in-chief of Genome Integrity, an online journal. He is an associate editor of Frontiers in Genetics as well as the editorial board member of Mutation Research – Genetic Toxicology and Environmental Mutagenesis. He was a consultant to the Division of Human Health, International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna, Austria in 2015 -2016 during his sabbatical leave from NUS. Dr. Hande is currently an expert member of the workgroup on “Biological mechanisms influencing health effects from low-dose radiation exposure” with the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR). Dr. Hande is a member of Committee 1, International Commission on Radiological Protection from July 01, 2021.
