Robert Caudle

Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Neuroscience Division, University of Florida

My research focuses on the molecular and physiological processes that initiate and maintain chronic pain. In particular, we are examining alterations in the function of the N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA) class of excitatory amino acid receptor in the spinal cord and the vanilloid receptor – the protein responsible for detecting the burning sensation produced by hot chili peppers – in the periphery following persistent stimulation. The NMDA receptor performs the function of an amplifier in the spinal cord to enhance pain signals, whereas the vanilloid receptor detects pain from heat, inflammation, and chemicals throughout the body. These studies examine changes in the phosphorylation status of these two receptors and alterations in subunits and splice variants as a result of painful experiences. These studies also examine the interaction of the NMDA receptor and vanilloid receptor with endogenous neuropeptides that are released during chronic pain. The ultimate goal of our work is to develop novel strategies to avoid the induction of chronic pain and new therapies to treat chronic pain once it is established.

Robert France is a leading environmental and landscape scholar and professor at Dalhousie University who has written on pilgrimage and sacred landscapes and had commentaries about the Great War read on CBC Radio. In June 2018, he organized a memorial service held on the Halifax waterfront on the centenary day of the departure of the hospital ship, the Llandovery Castle, which would go one to be torpedoed and result in the largest loss of lives of nurses in the Great War, and be regarded as the most serious war crime of that conflict. He is currently at work on a book derived from his walk along the Western Front.

Robert has published research on animals from bacteria to whales, in locations from the High Arctic to the tropics, much dealing with their relationships to anthropogenic stress. His humanities research concerns landscape architecture and the history of sacred landscapes, pilgrimage, and environmental history and ethnobiology.

Lecturer of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Bryant University
I am an archaeologist and biological anthropologist who specializes in early human paleoecology. I am currently a Lecturer in the Department of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, School of Health & Behavioral Sciences, Bryant University and a Research Affiliate in the isoTROPIC Research Group at the Max Planck Institute of Geoanthropology.

My research lies at the intersection of paleoanthropology, paleoecology, and geochemistry and combines traditional archaeological field methods with lipidomics and isotope studies to cast new, detailed light on relationships between environmental processes, cultural change, and human evolution. I have an extensive research portfolio and network which geographically spans eastern, southern, and western Africa, the Middle East, east and southeast Asia, and western Europe, and temporally covers the past two million years.

Much of my work investigates the role climatic and environmental variability had in shaping human origins and diversification. To do so, I use a suite of archaeological biomarkers to reconstruct past plant ecology and water availability (plant waxes), anthropogenic fire history (aromatic hydrocarbons), and population dynamics (faecal stanols and sterols). I am also an expert in multiple gas chromatography and mass spectrometry analytical techniques, including compound specific stable isotope ratio mass spectrometry.
