Research information:

My lab is defining at the molecular level, the differences between normal and tumour tissues. Our plan is to develop novel cancer therapeutics that target tumour tissue but do not harm normal tissue. We are developing viruses that can infect and kill tumour cells but do not infect normal cells. These viruses are called Oncolytic Viruses

Research information:

We are interested in identifying the consequences of pollutants on natural systems. Our main emphasis is on the sources, pathways and fate of persistent pollutants in aquatic environments. In particular, we are interested in determining how industrial pollutants are transported and concentrated by natural phenomena to reach elevated exposures in target organisms.

Research information:

Our research group studies how the control of gene expression determines cell identity. In particular, we aim at understanding how certain proteins regulate gene transcription in skeletal muscle stem cells during regeneration. To this end, we use an approach called functional genomics, where we study at the scale of the entire genome how proteins interact among each other and with DNA to control gene expression.

Research information:

Virology and microbiology are my specialties. My main activities are on viral genetics and evolution mainly directed at understanding how viruses cause disease (pathogenesis) or become adapted to new hosts. The mechanism used by influenza virus to control the antiviral interferon response. Experience with several viruses, hepatitis C, reovirus, mumps virus, Torque Tino virus (TTV).

Research information:

My laboratory studies the molecular biology of aging and diseases associated with aging (neurodegenerative diseases and cancer). Our primary focus is on the role of declining protein degradation efficiency in aging. Our research makes extensive use of transgenic mouse models, cell culture systems, and live cell imaging.

Research information:

My interests and expertise resides with how animals and in particular fish, adapt or adjust to their environment both in the short- (seasonally) and long- (evolutionary) terms. Recently my work has emphasized how toxic chemicals (man-made chemicals including PCBs and pharmaceuticals) found in aquatic environments impact the health, reproduction and fitness of fish species.

Research information:

My main field of research is targeting the salt-sensitive high blood pressure. This particular kind of high blood pressure has been connected with a genetic component that is inherited from parents to offspring and that is usually exacerbated by high salt-intake. As a Geneticist Candidate and a Pharmacist, I am investigating the genes that might be involved in transmitting that genetic form of high blood pressure.

Research information:

The typical mammalian cell expresses thousands of proteins, over a third of which are regulated by the reversible addition of a phosphate group. My laboratory studies the targeting and regulation of PP1, one of the key enzymes in the cell that removes these phosphate groups. By studying this phosphatase in living cells using cutting edge fluorescence microscopy techniques and novel methods for identifying protein complexes, we can define its roles in diverse intracellular signalling pathways and how it may be disrupted in disease states such as cancer and diabetes.
