    December 07, 2021: Dr. Vu Thi Thom (UMP-VNU), Endothelium and Microcirculation in Noncommunicable Diseases

    The endothelium is a mono-layer of cells lining the interior surface of entire vascular system. In physiological condition, the endothelium kept the intact of vessel by stabilizing the vessel permeability as a bed for multiple signaling cascades. When the endothelium injured call endothelial dysfunction, it turned to pathological condition like thrombosis, inflammation that could lead to atherosclerosis, stroke, coronary syndrome, tissue damage which are considered as noncommunicable diseases. In vascular system, the vessel included artery, vein and capillary. Small artery and vein and the capillary system were called microcirculation. The endothelium plays very important role in microcirculation when they are the functional cell layer of microcirculation. In addition, anti-platelet aggregation is considered as one of strategy to prevent multiple cardiovascular diseases and vessel complications. In this talk, I will present about endothelium, microcirculation, and the use of anti-platelet aggregation in the prevention of the non-communicable diseases.

    Dr. Vu T. Thom was born in Thai Binh province. She finished her bachelor in biology at Hanoi University of Science, Vietnam Nation University Hanoi in 2005 at position of valedictorian. In 2007, Ministry of Science and Education, Germany offered her a scholarship for a PhD program at Technical University Dresden. Subsequently, she obtained her Doctor of Philosophy degree there in 2011, and then she had started her academic career at University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Vietnam National University Hanoi (UMP) since 2012. Currently, she is the head of Department of Science, Technology, and International Relations of UMP. She is also the head of Department of Basic Sciences in Medicine and Pharmacy of UMP. Her research of interest is metabolic disorders related to diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. She has (co)authored more than 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals and conferences. She also participated in several international research projects working with collaborators from USA, UK, Germany, China and Thailand.


    February 2, 2024: Dr. Khoa D. Doan (Vin Univeristy) Toward Reliable and Practical Machine Learning Applications

    While Machine Learning (ML) has rapidly transformed several domains and applications with incredible successes, there are also important areas where the progress is significantly slower. Specifically, there exists a widened complexity gap between the methods currently investigated in research and those used in practice in these areas. One reason is that many algorithms, despite achieving […]

    February 2, 2024: Prof. Heng Ji (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Combating with Misinformation and Cancer: A Unified Multimodal AI Approach to Healthy and Happy Life

    A research overview of ongoing research projects, especially focusing on two that are most related to the VinUni-UIUC Smart Health Center: (1) Misinformation Detection and Trustworthy Large Language Models; (2) Joint Natural Language and Molecule Learning for Drug Discovery. Unsurprisingly these two seemingly different research problems can be tackled with a unified approach based on […]

    January 11, 2024: Dr. Le Duc Trong (FIT-UET) Resilient Multimodal Learning for Multimodal Emotion Recognition in the Presence of Incomplete Modalities

    Multimodal Emotion Recognition in Conversation (Multimodal ERC) is a critical area of research for interpreting human communication in diverse applications. Nevertheless, the persistent issue of uncertain missing modalities poses a major hurdle, hampering the development of robust Multimodal ERC models. Existing approaches face limitations in effectively leveraging a fusion of diverse data modalities encompassing audio, […]
