Professor Giovanni Scapagnini MD PhD

Professor Scapagnini was born in Naples on 31/08/1966. He has graduated in 1992 at the School of Medicine and Surgery, University of Catania, and he has obtained a PhD in Neurobiology in 2000. Since completing his education, Dr. Scapagnini has conducted research with the Institute of Pharmacology associated with the University of Catania and has worked as a Visiting Scientist with Department of Surgical Research, Northwick Park Institute for Medical Research, Harrow, UK in 1999, and with Laboratory of Adaptive Systems, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, National Institute of Health in Bethesda, MD, USA in 2000. Dr. Scapagnini has been Research Assistant Professor at the Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute, West Virginia University at Johns Hopkins University, Rockville, MD from 2000 to 2003 and Research Assistant Professor at the Institute of Neurological Sciences, Italian National Research Council, from 2003 to 2006. From 2004 he has been Visiting professor at the Institute of Human Virology, University of Maryland, Baltimore, MD. Currently he hold an Academic positions as Associate Professor of Clinical Biochemistry, at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Molise, Campobasso. His fields of research regard biology and molecular mechanisms of ageing and neurodegenerative disorders, with particular focus on nutrient activated signaling pathways related to lifespan regulation.

2014 Pre-conference: Back to the Future: The Role of Diet, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, and Polyphenols in the Management of Aging.
2014 Lecture: Oxidative Stress and Aging: The Okinawa model

Giovanni Scapagnini, Department of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of Molise, Campobasso, Italy.
Craig D Willcox, Department of Human Welfare, Okinawa International University.
A challenge in the area of healthy ageing is to identify dietary patterns, in addition to specific dietary components, that offer protection against age-related diseases. Residents of Okinawa, the southernmost prefecture of Japan, are known for their long average life expectancy, high numbers of centenarians, and accompanying low risk of age-associated diseases. Much of the longevity advantage in Okinawa is thought to be related to a healthy lifestyle, particularly the traditional diet and the social support of family and friends. Okinawan diet is low in calories, yet nutritionally dense, particularly with regard to vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients and it is associated with lower rates of cardiovascular mortality, reduced risk for hormone dependent cancers, as well as longevity. There is a substantial amount of research supporting oxidative stress as one of the main causes of ageing. In contrast, there are few longevity models that have been created to evaluate enhanced anti-oxidative mechanisms. Many phytochemicals (e.g. polyphenols, flavonoids, terpenoids, etc.) are major ingredients present in fruits, vegetables, and spices typically used in the Okinawa diet, and most of them have been shown to have protective effects- against age- related degeneration. Interestingly, many of these phytochemicals are activators of Nrf2, a central regulator of the adaptive response to oxidative stress, and through this pathway they can inhibit ROS production and counteract oxidative damage. In this presentation we briefly discuss relevant topics on ageing and longevity with particular focus on dietary patterns of Okinawa centenarians and nutrient-sensing pathways that have a pivotal role in the regulation of redox homeostasis and life span.
