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:

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:

Dr. Ekker's main research interests lie in the evolution and regulation of families of genes involved in embryonic development. He pursues the characterization of developmental genes in zebra fish and mice with a particular emphasis on the Dlx homeobox genes. The Dlx genes are studied more particularly in the context of forebrain and brachial arch development. Finally, the Ekker laboratory is using zebra fish as a model for Parkinson’s disease.

Research information:

Research in our lab concerns the most fundamental and persistent puzzle of nature: the origin and maintenance of biodiversity. Or, put another way, we are trying to answer the age-old question, why are there so many species in the world? To do this requires that we study the evolutionary process as it unfolds, keeping track of the variety of genotypes and phenotypes in a population or community through time, a task that would be very challenging with any large, long-lived organism. For this reason, we use microbial populations of bacteria and protists to study the evolutionary process in the laboratory. Topics of interest in the laboratory include the relationship between environmental variation and diversity, the genetics of adaptation, evolutionary medicine, and the evolution of social interactions.

Research information:

My current research includes empirical work on potential biases in genetic association studies, harmonization of biobanks, the potential value of germline genetic profiling in prediction of risk for chronic disease, the potential value of information on family history in predicting risk for chronic disease, potential value of information on HPV and other factors in management of women with low-grade cervical abnormalities.

I am engaged in collaborations on enhancing surveillance of congenital anomalies in Canada, on long term health outcomes in people with congenital anomalies and on the etiology and management of cleft lip and palate.

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.
