Emil Kakkis

Emil Kakkis is an American medical geneticist known for his work to develop treatments for ultra rare disorders. He is the President and Founder of the Kakkis EveryLife Foundation and Chief Executive Officer and President at Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical Inc. Kakkis began his work at Harbor–UCLA Medical Center working with minimal funding and support to develop an enzyme replacement therapy for the rare disorder Mucopolysaccharidosis; the struggle to get the therapy translated from a successful canine model to patients succeeded due to the critical financial support of a patient organization formed by Mark and Jeanne Dant for their son Ryan, called the Ryan Foundation. Aldurazyme development was supported by BioMarin and their partner Genzyme leading to U. S. Food and Drug Administration approval in 2003. During his tenure at BioMarin, Kakkis guided the development and approval of two more treatments for rare disorders, MPS VI and PKU and has contributed to the initiation of seven other treatment programs for rare disorders, three of which are now in clinical development.

Kakkis is board certified in both Pediatrics and Medical Genetics. He graduated from Pomona College, magna cum laude, received combined MD and PhD degrees from the UCLA Medical Scientist Program and received the Bogen prize for his research, he completed a Pediatrics residency and Medical Genetics Training Fellowship at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. He became an assistant professor of Pediatrics at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center from 1993 to 1998 where he initiated the enzyme therapy program for MPS I. In early 2009, Kakkis founded the Kakkis EveryLife Foundation to accelerate biotech innovation for rare diseases; the Foundation initiated the CureTheProcess Campaign dedicated to improving the regulatory and clinical development process for rare diseases. The Campaign has been endorsed by more than 175 patient physician society partners. Kakkis spent the last year working with the U. S. FDA and Congress to improve the regulatory process for rare diseases, his goals were recognized in the passing of the Brownback Brown Amendment to the 2010 FDA appropriation bill.

The bill requires the FDA to review its rare disease regulatory policies and look for ways to improve. The FDA is working on a report to Congress and plan for improvements by the deadline of September 2011; the Kakkis Family and the Foundation are major supporters of projects that help the rare disease community such as, EveryLife Art Contest, Global Genes Project, National MPS Society, Rare Disease Legislative Advocates and the SIMD’s North American Metabolic Academy.

Henry Bond

Henry Bond, FHEA is an English writer and visual artist. In his Lacan at the Scene, Bond made contributions to theoretical forensics. In 1990, with Sarah Lucas, Bond organised the art exhibition East Country Yard Show, influential in the formation and development of the Young British Artists movement. In the 1990s, Bond was a photojournalist working for British fashion and youth culture magazine The Face. In 1998, his photobook of street fashions in London The Cult of the Street was published, his Point and Shoot, explored the photo-genres of surveillance and paparazzi photojournalism. In 2007, Bond completed his doctoral research. Henry Bond was born in Upton Park, in East London in 1966, he attended Goldsmiths at the University of London, graduating in 1988, from the Department of Art, with fellow alumni Angela Bulloch, Ian Davenport, Anya Gallaccio, Gary Hume, Michael Landy—each of whom was to participate in the YBA art scene. Bond attended Middlesex University in Hendon studying for an MA in Psychoanalysis, where he was taught by Lacan scholar Bernard Burgoyne.

Bond was a research student at the University of Gloucestershire in Cheltenham Spa between 2004–2007. Bond teaches postgraduate photography, in the Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture, at Kingston University. Lacan at the Scene is a work of non-fiction by Henry Bond, published in 2009 by the MIT Press; the book consists of interpretations of forensic photographs from twenty-one crime scenes from 1950s and 1960s England. The thesis put forward in the book is that homicide can be considered in terms of Jacques Lacan's tripartite psychological model, thus any murder can be classified as either neurotic, psychotic, or perverse. Bond's approach is linked to Walter Benjamin's assertion that, "photography, with its devices of slow motion and enlargement, reveals the secret, it is through photography that we first discover the existence of the optical unconscious, just as we discover the instinctual unconscious through psychoanalysis."Lacan at the Scene is an interdisciplinary study, an application of the theories of Jacques Lacan in relation to offender profiling and an inquiry into the nature and essence of photography.

Bond's book considers the effects of photography on the spectator, the photographer and the photographic subject. He refers to a wide range of contextual material including "J. G. Ballard, William Burroughs, Friedrich Nietzsche, Jean-Paul Sartre and Slavoj Žižek... and the films of Alfred Hitchcock, Michael Powell, Michelangelo Antonioni, David Lynch and Christopher Nolan, among many others." The book contains a foreword essay The Camera's Posthuman Eye by the Slovenian philosopher and critical theorist Slavoj Žižek. Many of the photographs reproduced in the book are sexually explicit—they depict murder victims who were raped or tortured before the killing. Describing his research, in a 2007 interview, Bond said, "the press reporter's access to a crime scene is restricted, it is blocked by the ubiquitous black and yellow tape emblazoned with the exhortation: CRIME SCENE DO NOT CROSS; the photographs that I have worked with are documents made in a place that the press photographer or reporter cannot go."

The critical reception of Lacan at the Scene was positive including reviewers commending the book as'insightful','ground-breaking','audacious' and'enthralling' – writing in the peer-reviewed journal The European Legacy, Viola Brisolin said,"Lacan at the Scene is a brilliant, ground-breaking work that will appeal to cultural practitioners and theorists, to everybody interested in the dialogue between psychoanalysis and visual studies." Writing in the peer-reviewed academic journal Philosophy of Photography, Margaret Kinsman said "Bond's exploration... reminds us of just how used to order we are and how shocking and easy its dissolution is... his approach evokes a kind of aesthetic pleasure, which unsettles as it satisfies."Emily Nonko's review said, "Lacan at the Scene presents a complex dynamic between both psychoanalysis and medium of the camera, the way that photography permits the viewer to delve into both the murder's mind and the victim's corpse, the psychological as well as the corporeal."Reviewing the book for Time Out New York Parul Sehgal said: "While Bond’s interpretations strain credulity, his sensibility enthralls.

His goal isn’t police work per se, but to reveal how humble objects at the margins of crime scenes become powerfully allusive and lend themselves to a narrative."Daniel Hourigan, writing for Metapsychology Online Reviews said, "for the vast majority of the discussions in the more applied third and fifth chapters, Lacan at the Scene enjoys a lucid and precise execution. The early chapters help to bring together the theoretical and political elements that make these chapters capable of pursuing such a rigorous and insightful project." In July 2011, Bond's second book on the theory and philosophy of photography, The Gaze of the Lens, was self-published using the Kindle direct publishing format. In the book, Bond "activates, reconfigures and occasi
