Josef Martin Penninger, born in Gurten, Austria, is a world-renowned geneticist and the Canada 150 Research Chair in Functional Genetics. Dr. Penninger is currently the Director of the Life Sciences Institute (LSI) at the University of British Columbia. He studied medicine at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. From 1990 to 1994 he worked as post-doctoral fellow at the Ontario Cancer Institute, thereafter until 2002 at the Department of Immunology and Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto. As Principal Investigator at Amgen, his independent lab contributed to the development of the antibody Denosumab for bone loss and also found the first connection for RANKL to mammary gland development in pregnancy and breast cancer. In 2002, he moved to Vienna, Austria to start and develop the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (IMBA), which has become one of the prime research centers in the world. Dr. Penninger envisions to recreate this environment at the LSI to nurture and train the best and brightest young minds of UBC scholars. His major accomplishments include pioneering insights into the molecular basis of osteoporosis and breast cancer, and demonstrating a critical role for ACE2 as the cellular receptor for SARS Coronavirus infections and linking ACE2 to lung failure in such infections. He has published extensively in several multidisciplinary scientific journals, with over 65 publications in Cell, Nature, and Science. Josef has received numerous awards including the Wittgenstein Prize of the Austrian Federal Government, the Descartes Prize for Research, the Ernst Jung Prize for Medical Excellence, the Innovator Award of the US Department of Defense, and the Austrian Cross of Honor for Science and Art First Class.

A. Personal Statement

I am a full Professor of Medicine at Sao Paulo Medical School of Sao Paulo University (USP), Head of the Endocrinology & Metabolism Service at Hospital das Clínicas, Principal Researcher at the Laboratory of Hormones and Molecular Genetics in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I earned my doctorate in Endocrinology at Sao Paulo University and National Institutes of Health (Maryland, USA). I am elected full member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences and I have been honored with several awards, including Richard E. Weitzman Memorial Award (2003) and International Excellence Award (2019) granted by the Endocrine Society. A major focus of my research has been to elucidate the genetic mechanisms of several pediatric endocrine diseases, including adrenal tumors, precocious puberty (peripheral e central forms) and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. In recent years, my research group was the first to identify and characterize the monogenic causes of inherited central precocious puberty. My research has involved clinical and genetic studies in humans using genetic approach (DNA sequencing and methylation analysis). I am author of more than 200 original manuscripts published in international and national journals, including four publications in The New England Journal of Medicine, three of them as first or senior author.

1. My laboratory has made important contributions to understanding genetic and molecular mechanisms controlling the reproductive axis. We were the first to identify mutations in KISS1 and KISS1R in patients with central precocious puberty. We also identified mutations in KISS1R in patients with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. We also unveiled the molecular mechanism by which a KISS1R mutation causes central precocious puberty.

Research Contributions and Impact
Angela Titmuss is a paediatric endocrinologist at Royal Darwin Hospital and works as a clinician-researcher at Menzies School
of Health Research. She is the only paediatric endocrinologist within the Northern Territory and undertakes remote outreach
across the region. She has been the lead paediatric researcher on a study involving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
children and youth with type 2 diabetes since its inception, including leading the audit of prevalence across northern Australia
(Kimberley, NT, Far North Queensland). This included leading study design, ethics submission, community consultation, data
collection, data analysis, data interpretation and community feedback. She was also the lead paediatric researcher on the
Pregnancy And Neonatal Diabetes Outcomes in Remote Australia (PANDORA) Wave 1 study since its inception, including
initiating and designing sub-studies related to developmental and behavioural risk assessment. These studies were part of her
PhD which is currently under examination. She has formed very good working relationships with key Aboriginal and Torres
Strait Islander health organisations across northern Australia since commencing at Menzies, is committed to Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander capacity building and her research involves multiple Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander co-authors.
She is co-chair of the Australasian Paediatric Endocrine Group type 2 diabetes working group, with research collaborations
across Australia regarding youth-onset type 2 diabetes, and also chairs the Top End Youth Diabetes Working Group.

Biography
Professor Helen Colhoun’s research programme uses large scale population based approaches to further our understanding of the pathogenesis and means of prevention of diabetes complications. A main component of her current work harnesses the increasing availability of e-health record data (EHR) and new technologies for acquiring high dimensional molecular ‘omics data. The Colhoun Group research quantifies contemporaneous absolute risks of complications, evaluate risk factors for complications, and build prediction models using e-health record data. These data are used to inform current health care policy and clinical practice in diabetes. The Research group also use large bioresources linked to these data to quantify the marginal improvement gained by genetics and biomarker panels beyond that achieved by EHR data. Our aim is that these prediction algorithms will then be incorporated into prediction tools for clinical and self-management, and will be useful in clinical trial design. These genetics and biomarker studies also yield important information on the pathogenesis of diabetes complications, that, with more detailed wet-lab research with colleagues in the Institute of Genetics and Cancer, can inform future development of new therapies. Our research programme also encompasses the design and conduct of clinical trials of new drugs and approaches for preventing diabetes complications.
During the COVID-19 global pandemic Professor Colhoun has Co-Chaired the COVID-19 Modelling & Research cell at Public Health Scotland.
Professor Colhoun also chairs the SDRNT1BIO Steering committee.
