Distinct role of eosinophils in severe asthma
Hae-Sim Park, MD, PhD, Professor
Professor, Department of Allergy & Clinical Immunology
Ajou University School of Medicine, Suwon, South Korea
Dr. Hae-Sim Park is the Professor of the Department of Allergy & Clinical Immunology at Ajou University School of Medicine, Suwon, South Korea. She is the Director of Research-driven Hospital Project and the president of Ajou University Medical Center.
In clinical science, she has been recognized as a top-ranked allergy specialist in Korea and devoted as national and regional principal investigators in early clinical trials, and real-world studies for asthma and allergy based on clinical big data. Regarding translational research activities, she has concentrated on three fields, 1) Identification of biomarkers for severe asthma and NSAID hypersensitivity, 2) the pathogenic mechanisms of occupational asthma and rhinitis, 3) Identification of new allergens and development of immunomodulators, including biologics for severe asthma. She has published more than 500 peer-reviewed articles in fields of biomarker identification in asthma and allergic disease, asthma subtype and precision medicine, efficacy of allergen immunotherapy, IVIG and biologics, and management issues of asthma and elderly asthma. She is working as a leading author of major textbooks including Middleton’,s textbook of allergy, and has been invited numerous times to lecture before major international academic meetings.
She has served on reviewers/editors of leading allergy journals and had devoted as an editor-in-chief of Allergy Asthma Immunology Research for 7 years (2014-2020) to promote this journal to international scale.

Dysregulated fatty acid metabolism of human eosinophils in allergic diseases
Dr. Jun Miyata, MD, PhD
Division of Infectious Diseases and Respiratory Medicine,
Department of Internal Medicine, National Defense Medical College
Dr. Jun Miyata is an associate professor/lecturer at Division of Infectious Diseases and Respiratory Medicine, National Defense Medical College and a researcher at RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences and Keio University, School of Medicine in Japan. He is pulmonologist and allergist and has expertise in treatment of respiratory allergic diseases. Jun is engaged in translational research using human eosinophils isolated from patients with severe asthma and its related diseases (J Allergy Clin Immunol. 2013; Allergy. 2019). He also investigates regulatory mechanism of fatty acid metabolism in allergic diseases (Front Immunol. 2021). Omics analysis (lipidomics, proteomics, and transcriptomics) is a key technology for his research.
