Scientific Program Chair

Amherst, NY

As a Program Chair/Director at Hungarian Medical Association of America, I am working with the ad-hoc Program Committee to organize the yearly Scientific Meeting of HMAA. The meeting is multidisciplinary traditionally and its goal is getting information to the wide range audience in the latest development in bio-medical science and clinical application. Also we manage the accreditation of our yearly meeting for CME complying with ACCME requirements in collaboration with CME office at School of Medicine and Biomedical Science at SUNY/Buffalo as a provider for our accreditation.

I earned my M.S. degree in Biology and the Ph.D. in Biochemistry from School of Natural Sciences, of Eotvos Lorand University, Budapest Hungary. Also I have qualification for Six credit hours in Clinical Chemistry from School of Health Related Professions , State University of New York at Buffalo, have certification for NIH Clinical Research Training Course, and Human Participants Protection Education For Research Team from NIH. Also I hold an adjunct faculty position at Department of Medicine School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, SUNY at Buffalo as an Research Assistant Professorin Medicine.

As a Research (Surgical) Scientist with the Laser Center at Rochester General Hospital, my research is focused on

  1. understanding of the biological mechanisms of photo-biomodulation by low level laser (light) therapy (LLLT),
  2. developing new LLLT treatment modalities for impaired wound healing and
  3. evaluating surgical and biomedical applications of different laser technologies.

I have been PI and Co-PI on a number of internal and external grants. The results of our research and investigations are published in 70 peer-reviewed publications and in 72 presentations at national meetings. Results of this translational research have also received international attention and were incorporated into a medical text – four book chapters - giving guidance on laser therapy for doctors, dentists, veterinarians, research scientists and others within the medical fields - as new basic information of the mechanism of photo-biomodulation. I have been involved as a co–investigator in protocol development and clinical trials for photo-biomodulation, regulatory affairs and outcome analysis of clinical trials. At RGH, I serve as member of the Clinical Investigation Committee/ IRB, and as a Principal Scientist of the Internal Animal Usage Care Committee (IACUC) and I am serving as per-reviewer for the following journals: Laser in Surgery and Medicine, Photobiology and Laser Surgery, Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Developments. I have always been committed to teaching and have always enjoyed this facet of my career. Teaching has been a vital part of my career and has involved students at varying stages of their training ranging from high school and college students to post-graduate trainees. I gained teaching experience during my adjunct faculty service at UB, as an Instructor in the Thromboembolic /Hemorrhagic Diseases course for medical students (1991-1998). I developed further teaching skills as an Instructor of a graduate-level course entitled Instrumental Analysis for Clinical Laboratories. In this course, teaching of the theoretical approaches was followed by practical applications with a focus on minimizing errors and troubleshooting (1995-1998). Recently, my teaching activities have focused on coaching and demonstrating laser applications for medical students as well as surgical and ob-gyn residents at Laser Center, Rochester General Hospital(1998-present).
