Research information:

Our research addresses the role of the serotonin and dopamine systems in Depression, Anxiety, and Schizophrenia.  In particular, our research focuses on genetic and environmental factors (such as early or late life stress) that determine the activity of these systems and the implications for brain function and behavior. We have identified specific gene polymorphisms, gene regulators and epigenetic alterations caused by stress that increase the risk of mental illness and affect the response to antidepressant treatments.  Our current research is to develop animal models of these genetic alterations to identify their role in susceptibility to mental illness and as models to develop new treatments to attenuate the effects of stress, anxiety, or depression.

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.

My research program is at the interface of ecology, behaviour, and physiology. All physiological processes are temperature dependent. Thus, since reptiles are ectotherms, variation in their body temperature affects all of their developmental and behavioural processes. Hence, body temperature ultimately has a significant impact on fitness. The general goal of my research program is to understand how temperature affects the ecology of reptiles

I specialize in methods for risk assessment and risk management, with a particular focus upon human health risks. I am particularly interested in the science policy interface that mediates between the synthesis of facts and the formulation of policy defining conclusions. Methods of particular interest include uncertainty analysis, applied decision analysis, demography, and health economics. I have applied these types of tools in the context of interpreting animal bioassay evidence in the support of regulatory determinations of chemical safety, and am currently applying demography approaches to the study of summary measures of population health (such as DALYs, QALYs, PEYLLs and alike).

Research information:

Critical periods of development are marked by important physiological and neural changes. These changes shape behavior and set the stage for the vulnerability of diseases in adulthood. Exposure to stressors during these critical periods can have profound long-lasting effects on brain function and can increase the risk of psychopathology later in life. While it is possible to reduce exposure to certain environmental stressors, other stressors, such as sickness, are almost unavoidable. My research interests are to investigate the neurochemical mechanisms through which immune challenge and hormones during the prenatal and pubertal periods alter behavior. The behavioral outcomes that I am examining are social behaviors, depression and cognition. I use small rodents, such as laboratory mice and rats, to gain mechanistic insight into these questions.

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 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.
