Biosketch: Mr. Adebayo is a Marine Engineer in Nigeria. David has Civic and Educational Interests that overlap with those of Board Members of the LSINJ. Mr. Adebayo's forte is in adapting to a series of professional, research, educational and civic careers in which he is currently engaged. Including in Oriade Ship Chandlers & Shipping Services, PreScouter Inc and in the Royal PreScholar School. David Adebayo is the current Director of Oriade Ship Chandlers and Shipping Services company which he founded in 2019. As a Scholar in Prescouter Incorporated, which he joined in 2017, he researches a diversity of Engineering topics. These projects are revealed in a modified extract from his (biosketch) posts on LinkedIn and personal messages. He communicates that 'since joining PreScouter in 2017, David has remained an active researcher, and has successfully researched for over thirty Fortune 500 companies, including top marine engine manufacturer, battery, mining, EV, satellite internet solutions, and construction companies.' Since 2018, Mr. Adebayo works Full-time as the ‘Founding Owner of the Royal PreScholar School’ delivering Educational Courses in a variety of subjects. He is also a Member of Nigerian Institute of Shipping, and the Project Management Institute.

Not satisfied with these contributions and accomplishments Mr. Adebayo embarked on still others. In 2019 David 'applied to Drexel University (Online) to take a course in Project Management at Graduate Certificate level, a step towards achieving a Master in Project Management, and which is scheduled to commence this summer. Last year, however, due to his inability to raise the needed fund as a result of Covid-19 pandemic, he notified the admission office of my plan to take the course in a future time (2021 probably).'

Finally, as someone with an acute Civic Sense David has chosen to ameliorate the lot of those who are less fortunate. He has founded 'a charity (Project Jesus Feeds) which provides free food to less privileged, poor widows, and old ones in Ila Orangun, Osun state, Nigeria.'

David Adebayo studied:

(i) Marine Engineering at diploma level in African Maritime Academy, Lagos (Now in Oyo town, Oyo state) Nigeria from 2003 to 2006;

(ii) Shipping and Logistics Management at Higher Diploma level in Nigerian Institute of Shipping from 2012 to 2013;

(iii) Transport and Logistics Management at Bachelor level in Ecotes De la Grace University, Republic of Benin from 2013 to 2016.

Furthermore David reiterates 'I still have a strong will to achieve an advanced degree in no distant time, and as soon as things go back to normalcy, I would resume plan on the pursuit. I remain hopeful and optimistic about this.'

David Adebayo is experienced in promoting the Public Interest in Civic Issues and Health care. In addition, he has executed administrative responsibilities at several levels in the Educational system while working on areas with significance for the Marine Engineering and Research Industry. At least some of these interests will echo with some Board Members of the LSINJ.

Although we are a long way from realizing our goals, should we ever attain them, Maritime Engineer David Adebayo would play a critical role. By joining the other Engineers in our group he would consult with expert Architects, Engineers and Contractors in constructing appropriate facilities (building, labs, colonies and home office) for the institute.

Mr. David Adebayo has much that he can contribute to the Life Sciences Institute of New Jersey. Both in tangible and in intangible ways of cross-cultural leadership in an institute such as the LSINJ. The LSINJ by definition not only has an international membership, but one that is globally situated. Our last roster included representation in 4 broad groups of functions in 10 nations and on 5 continents.

We welcome Marine Engineer, Educator, Researcher, Teacher and Civic Advocate Mr. David Adebayo to the Board of the LSINJ as a Vice President of Marine Engineering, Educational Civic and Charitable initiatives. We look forward to productive collaborations with him.

Biosketch: Dr. Ferez Soli Nallaseth completed his educational studies in India and the United States. He was awarded, a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry (B.Sc.) from the University of Mumbai (Bombay) in 1975, India, a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology (B.S.) in 1977, and Master of Science degree in Microbiology (M.S.) in 1979 both from the University of Georgia, Athens, GA, in 1979. He was awarded a Doctorate (Ph.D.) degree in Biology (Genetics, Biochemistry) from the University of South Carolina, Columbia, in 1987. Ferez held a number of Postdoctoral Fellowship and Faculty positions across the United States in his core areas of research as well as in a broad subset of the Life Sciences. Dr. Nallaseth made some innovative and highly recognized contributions in scientific, societal, sports, civic and cultural areas. Dr. Nallaseth collaborates with international Scientists, Professors and Leaders at Universities, Global Think Tanks, Biotechnology Enterprises and Research Institutions in an array of sub-fields of the Life and Social Sciences in meeting the current challenges in Healthcare and Socioeconomics through the restructured LSINJ first established in 2004. These challenges are met by restructuring of the fundamental paradigm in Medicine, from therapeutic intervention via management to preemption in real time, of thousands of genetic disease lesions. Including those for which preemption is the only ‘real cure’ and cause such intractable pathological conditions as Cancer(s) and Alzheimer’s disease. This strategy emerged from Dr. Nallaseth’s current Core Area of Research in Mammalian Evolutionary Genetics of Speciation, regulation of Chromosome and Genome Biology (specifically DNA replication and recombination), Sex Determination and Gametogenesis. Contributions emerging from a 40 year journey by Dr. Nallaseth, made under extreme sociopolitical and non-scientific duress, have resulted in more than 200 online articles, ebook chapters, including in peer reviewed journals, conference presentations, editorials and OpEd pieces - with another 30 articles and 5 books in preparation. Many of which have corrected the literature of multiple fields published in frontline journals while covering an array of subjects in the various fields of sciences, sociopolitics, socioeconomics, sports and policy. His core work has now developed ramifications for Global Biomedical, Health and Economic Policies through the application of this approach. The magnitude of Global interest in this undertaking of the LSINJ is illustrated with the search term ‘What is the Life Sciences Institute of NJ’ yielding up to 236 million ‘hits’ on a Google Search (1) Is There a Role for an Evolutionary Genetics Based Rational Health Policy In Global Biomedical, Health and Economic Policies?

Biosketch: Medical Consultant Jean Plante is accomplished as a Bioethicist, Neuroscientist (all its branches), Oncologist, Endocrinologist, Geneticist, Psychologist, Historian and Philosopher. Thus Jean more completely fulfills Dr. Albert Einstein’s requirements of Scientist-Historian-Philosopher (see Home Page) than any other Board Member of the LSINJ. Of course with the possible exception of Prof. Nirmali Wijegoonwardana. Consultant Plante presents himself as an autodidact who has made conference presentations, from 1999 to date.

Jean’s wife's terminal illness with cancer was ‘a brutal turning in life’. At her request, Jean added everything related to oncology, and related disciplines.’ One of Jean’s undertakings provoked by her passing was assisting in the development of a new generation of UV based identifiers and photosensitizers of cancer cells. The Next Generation "Next Generation" PDT (NGPDT), has managed to develop a non-invasive therapy called photodynamic, unique and effective in the treatment of several types of cancer. NGPDT has achieved excellent results by developing a new generation of photosensitizer for the identification of cancer cells and to accumulate a concentration of this same photosensitizing agent. The NGPDT methods of Jean Plante and his colleagues, have depth, efficacy and lack the toxic side effects of prolonged photosensitivity caused as a side effect caused by traditional PDT protocols.”

In his multiple educational, administrative, philosophical and scientific roles Jean Plante brings a unique combination of contributions to the scientific and administrative dimensions of the LSINJ. We look forward to the continued vigor of our interactions.

Educational Institutions, (degrees etc): interdisciplinary research, including his Independent Studies South East Asian and Indian Field Study Course Contract in History of Religion, Comparative Religion and Theology. He received his B.A. Degree from the (now) Marylhurst University in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Then he did two more years of accredited post graduate master’s degree interdisciplinary research in his designed major of the History of Religion, Comparative Religion and Theology, through the External Degree Master’s Program of the Goddard Graduate School of Vermont College, Norwich University, in Norwich Vermont; Association with VP Ralph Sherman, B.S. at J.

Biosketch: David Sherman, as is his father Ralph Sherman, who is Vice President and Chief of Biophysics Operations of the LSINJ, has made large contributions to the Common Good or the Public Interest, on both an individual and societal level. As well as across the spectrum of Scientific, Industrial, Academic, Religious and Civic dimensions. As a Leader in the LGBTQ Community, David will make a positive contribution to the dialogue within and from the LSINJ at the contentious intersection of religion and science. Mr. David Sherman has undertaken review of the literature on scientific in the field of "Sex Differentiation and Sex Dimorphic Behavior in Vertebral Species". This review was undertaken at the request of the retired Founder of the National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC), Father Albert. That project was completed in 2001, but is unpublished. As a Board Member of the LSINJ he will be supported in publishing this work.

As a Board Member of the LSINJ David Sherman will liaise with the LGBTQ Community. He will continue being an advocate for human rights and medical ethics in assisting human society to become informed by the facts of reproductive biology. As opposed to being dominated by some religious or fictitiously perfect sexual dimorphism. He hopes to apply his findings in the literature to demonstrate and convince Humankind of the high frequency of INTERSEX and natural REPRODUCTIVE SEX REVERSAL in populations and species representing all of life on Earth. These species range from microbes and plants to mammals and humans, which underscore the importance and benefit of this biological diversity. One preferred sociopolitical outcome of his effort is the elimination of societal prejudice directed against intersex people and their behavioral sub-sets who self-identify as LGBTQ.

Mr. Sherman has also conducted his own research in biophysics and biomedical sciences preparing and/or presenting them at conferences.

Some of the many contributions of David Sherman (below) range from his recognized leadership and articulation of strong public positions, some of which are even adopted by global movements in:

(i) Multiple facets of protecting and promoting Human Rights including the LGBTQ community. He has advised the committee appointed by President Barack Obama for delivering relief to the LGBTQ community, (USA White House Health Conference),

(ii) Being a Spokesperson for ‘the Organization Intersex International (O.I.I.), the World’s most influential international organization of, and for, intersex people of all kinds.’ David is an intersex person and an expert on the biology of sex differentiation and sex-linked behavior in vertebrate species,

(iii) Being a lecturer at conferences and teaching postgraduate courses at Universities/Community Colleges in the USA, such as:

(a) At Marylhurst College Field Studies in 1982,

(b) In the Marylhurst PLE Program (Course Contract) as a Lecturer On Religion, Human Rights and Social Justice in South East Asia and India,

(c) At Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, he was a co-Founder and Presenter for the academic Arcadian Institute at the Centennial World Parliament of Religions in Chicago, USA, Portland State University Global Forum as a Guest Lecturer and Workshop Leader on Gandhian Ethics and Applied Theology,

(iv) papers articulating positions on sociopolitical, spiritual, LGBTQ issues and ethics presented at conferences or global organizations such as (a) the United Nations Non-Nuclear and World Heritage Zone of Peace Declaration for the King of Nepal, (b) Catholic Bishop’s Conferences (NCBC) - on a subject that I know well (sex determination), (c) the World Hindu Organization (W.H.O.) on the commonality of on the ancient relationships between “The Family of Hindu-Buddhist Sanskrity” and the Judeo-Christian Traditions,

(v) Delivering spiritual and material relief to those e.g. members of the Intersex Community who are socio-politically excluded or even exploited in both the East and West. He did so in areas with which he closely identified such as, mentally and physically challenged Child Care Treatment and Assessment “Trainable Mentally Retarded” as well as Minor Offender’s Vocational Program

All of these items are expanded on in David Sherman’s website (link below).

To clarify David Sherman’s Indian name posted on his website, Bhakti Ananda Goswami (David M. Sherman), emerges from Eastern and Western religious convictions. Quote:

‘Bhakti Ananda Goswami (David M. Sherman) is a Practicing Catholic Hermit under private vows, and a Tridandi Sannyasi (Vedic monk) and Siksha (Instructing) Master in the Brahma-Madhva-Gaudiya Lineage of Vaishnavism (Vishnu worship). ‘

Website: Colllected Works of Sri Bhakti Ananda Goswami, The Primal Revelations at the Heart of Civilization:

https://bhaktianandascollectedworks.wordpress.com/about/

The barriers that were overcome by David Sherman are reflected in the enormity of scale and extremities of diversity, complexity of nature, magnitude of effort and of physical, societal, economic and life threatening challenges that he has faced throughout his life. Despite health problems which should have been overwhelming, David Sherman made all of the contributions and still ongoing, to the Public Interest or the Common Good listed above (i to v).

Bhakti Ananda Goswami (David M. Sherman) has overcome much and stayed true to convictions of both a religious and scientific nature – two disciplines that are a contradiction in terms and hard to resolve. In one of many ways, the first requires cultivating belief while the second requires cultivating disbelief. They are two undertakings that are equally difficult to reconcile and yet David, like his father Ralph Sherman, has done so over a lifetime. His particular expertise in combinations of Science, Sociopolitics, Religion, Advocacy, personal and sociopolitical courage make David M. Sherman an invaluable spokesman for the cause(s) of the LSINJ. David Sherman would add much to the spectrum of diversity of Board Members in the LSINJ which is essential to meeting its primary and core goal while also accommodating and protecting the diverse and ancillary interests represented by its Board Members! In his multiple educational, administrative, philosophical and scientific roles David Sherman brings a unique combination of skills and contributions to the scientific and administrative dimensions of the LSINJ. We look forward to the continued vigor of our interactions.

As have other Board Members, Collin has applied analytical tools such as mouse models and genetics and Spheroid or 3D cultures in the analyses of mutagenesis, carcinogenesis and immunology. Collin's research results in these fields which were derived in the laboratory of Dr. Terrance J. Kavanaugh at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA.

In 1985 Collin was awarded his B.S. degree by the Western Washington University in the Field of Study of Human Biology and Physical Anthropology.

But these are the obvious and expected contributions that emerge from the Profile of a SRD Scientist such as Collin White. Not least interesting of all this is Collin's summarizing statement:

'I am constantly seeking knowledge in not just science, but in all the aspects that make it work or exist naturally or in a controlled environment. I believe this conceptual way of thinking about science in whatever facet from biology to physics allows one to get some knowledge of the big picture before concentrating on the focused question you are trying to solve.'

Instead of my trying unsuccessfully to tell you about all and even some of the dimensions of his contributions, it is most reasonable to extract relevant segments for those of you who are not yet members of LinkedIn. It is a profile which reveals a Scientist, Teacher, Naturalist, Farmer, Humanitarian and Athlete with a wry sense of humor and one who is best characterized by the remarkable references of two of his many peers and supervisors.

Mike Rosenfeld

Professor at University of Washington

'...He is an expert in many types of instrumentation and a pioneer in technique development. He is also very reliable and focuses on data quality and reproducibility. Colin also has years of successful laboratory management experience. He has also helped mentor and teach laboratory techniques to many graduate students and post-doctoral fellows over the years, most of whom would attest to the fact that they wouldn't have gotten their degrees without his help.'

Fred Benham

Escalation specialist flow cytometry Beckman Coulter

'....Also during visits to his laboratory I became aware that he was a key player in the laboratory and that everyone came to him to resolve problems with their instrumentation and experiments. He’s a very rare breed of scientist and technician. And when there are no available Technology to resolve a scientific challenge he will invent A solution.'

Senior R & D Scientist and Lab Manager Collin White is experienced in promoting the Public Interest in Health care in an array of Medical School, Life Sciences and University settings. In addition, he has executed administrative and teaching responsibilities at several levels in the University system. At least some of these interests will echo with those of some Board Members of the LSINJ. His experience in the Lab as a Technologist, Manager, and a Scientist is irreplaceable for an institution such as the LSINJ the BM of which hopes someday to house its own research facilities and teams.

Collin has much to contribute to the Life Sciences Institute of New Jersey (LSINJ) in both tangible as well as intangible ways. These include cross-cultural leadership in an institute such as the LSINJ which by definition not only has an international membership, but one that is globally located. We welcome Senior Scientist and Manager Collin C. White to the Board of the LSINJ as a Board Member.
