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.

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:

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 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.
