TÜBA Vice President Ahmet Nuri Yurdusev and TÜBA Principal Member Prof. Kazım Şahin, represent TÜBA, attended the workshop on “Role of Science for Inclusive Society” organized by the Association of Academies and Societies of Sciences in Asia-AASSA and Science Council of Japan-SCJ and also supported by InterAcademy Partnership-IAP on March 1-3, 2017.
Scientists from AASSA member countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, Russian Federation, Sri Lanka, Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Jordan and various Japan universities took part in the workshop.
Prof. Yurdusev, in his paper entitled "The Role of Science Academies in the Formation of an Inclusive Society," emphasized that science academics can contribute to an inclusive society if they are inclusive and that they should have a comprehensive understanding of science. Advocating that inclusive science can be defined in terms of paradigms and research programs, actors and stakeholders, topics and issues, theories and approaches, disciplines and branches, and unscientific knowledge branches, Prof. Yurdusev ended his speech by exemplifying the inclusion of TÜBA.
Prof. Kazım Şahin made a presentation entitled "Molecular Mechanism of Phytochemicals at Aging" at the session of "Innovations to Support Healthy Aging". In his presentation, Prof. Şahin said that “Aging, a complex and natural process seen in life, has been influenced by factors such as inadequate exercise, eating habits, stress, smoking, alcohol, body mass index, high lipid levels and blood sugar and these factors lead to the formation of free radicals in the body, normally formed by natural metabolic pathways, which are not caused by cytotoxicity and are eliminated by antioxidant systems.” Prof. Şahin continued his words as follows: "When this process is in favor of radicals, there are some pathological consequences such as aging. Experimental studies made by us have shown that phytochemicals such as curcumin, isoflavones (genistein) and lycopene prolonge life with anti-inflammation, antioxidant effects and provide numerous health benefits such as increased immunity in animal models, lowering of body weight, blood pressure and serum glucose. Phytochemicals demonstrated these effects by inhibiting the NF-kappaB signal, an important stimulus of inflammatory reactions and cancer formation, or stimulating signal pathways driven by factor 2 (Nrf2) dependent nuclear factor erythroid 2, which stimulates the antioxidant system.” Prof. Şahin also emphasized the need for detailed clinical studies on the subject.
