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:

For several years I have been conducting research in the field of psychosocial oncology, that is the study of how cancer affects patients and their loved ones. With a growing number of cancer survivors, attention has focused on quality of life post treatment issues. I study commonly encountered difficulties among cancer survivors such as fear of cancer recurrence, stigma, impaired sexuality, and family adjustment. Our ultimate goal is to develop evidence-based intervention for cancer survivors who experience these difficulties.

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.
