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:

1) Intracerebral Hemorrhage (ICH). ICH is the most devastating form of stroke, resulting in the highest mortality and disability rates. My group is working towards a definitive treatment for ICH. 2) Neuroimaging & acute stroke. I believe advanced brain imaging can optimize acute stroke therapy, guide therapeutic decision-making, and expand our current treatment windows. 3) Stroke Recovery. We have launched a series of studies evaluating the use of mobile-platform technologies to enhance recovery from stroke while in the acute care hospital.

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.
