Parmi Suchdev, MD, MPH

Associate Professor
Emory University
Atlanta, Georgia

Dr. Suchdev is Associate Director of the Emory Global Health Institute and holds faculty appointments in the Department of Pediatrics at the School of Medicine, the Hubert Department of Global Health at the Rollins School of Public Health, and the Program in Nutrition Health Sciences at the Laney Graduate School. He is also a medical epidemiologist with the CDC Nutrition Branch and a Pediatric Hospitalist at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, where he provides patientcare and teaches medical students and residents. Dr. Suchdev’s research focuses on micronutrient malnutrition, in particular the safety and effectiveness of home fortification programs, as well as the effects of infection/inflammation on nutrition biomarkers. Since 2010, he has written 60 papers on this topic, which have contributed to the formulation of global policy by the WHO. Dr. Suchdev has worked on collaborative research projects in over 10 countries and served on the Governance Committee of the American Society of Nutrition Global Nutrition Council.

Stephen D. Hursting, PhD, MPH

Professor
University of North Carolina
Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Dr. Stephen Hursting is Professor in the Department of Nutrition at the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill. He is also Professor at the UNC Nutrition Research Institute and a member of the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. He earned his PhD in nutritional biochemistry and MPH in nutritional epidemiology from UNC-Chapel Hill, and he completed postdoctoral training in molecular carcinogenesis and cancer prevention at the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Prior to joining the UNC faculty in 2014, Dr. Hursting was Professor and Chair of the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Texas (UT) at Austin, the McKean-Love Endowed Chair of Nutritional, Molecular and Cellular Sciences in the UT College of Natural Sciences, and Professor of Molecular Carcinogenesis at the UT-MD Anderson Cancer Center (2005-14). He also previously served as Chief of the NCI’s Nutrition and Molecular Carcinogenesis Laboratory Section (2000-2005) and Deputy Director of the NCI’s Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program (1999-2005). His research interests center on precision nutrition as applied to cancer prevention, particularly the molecular and metabolic mechanisms underlying obesity- cancer associations, and the interplay between obesity, metabolism and cancer. Primarily using preclinical models (including human and mouse cell lines, genetically engineered mouse models of cancer, and genetically heterogeneous Collaborative Cross mice) in parallel with human studies, he is currently focusing on the molecular and metabolic changes occurring in response to lifestyle-based (dietary and physical activity); surgical (bariatric surgery), or pharmacologic manipulation of energy metabolism and cell signaling pathways, with emphasis on growth factor signaling pathways, inflammation and the gut microbiome.
