The major focus of research in my lab is to define mechanisms by which secreted growth factors and their cognate receptors control branching morphogenesis, formation of a contractile ureter, and generation of nephrons. We study these mechanisms using primary kidney cell cultures, tissue explants, transgenic mice and kidney organoids.

PhD
Associate Professor
Research Location: University of Toronto - St. George Campus (downtown)
Primary Research Area: Cancer
Secondary Research Area: Metabolism & Nutrition

Our research program focuses on molecular networks implicated in cancer and diabetes. We are investigating signaling pathways contributing to tumor initiation, cancer stem cell maintenance and metastatic dissemination of breast cancers. We are also exploring mechanisms governing insulin resistance and pancreatic β-cell replication important for the design of regenerative therapies for  type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Primary Research Area: Cancer
Secondary Research Area: Brain & Neuroscience

My lab studies the molecular biology of human brain tumours.  We have developed model systems to analyze the manner in which brain tumours grow, invade, and evade therapy. Our goal is to increase our understanding of brain tumour biology so that new treatments can be discovered in the lab.

We study Alzheimer’s disease and prion disorders, pursuing the hypothesis that early diagnostics and disease intervention strategies will emerge from an in-depth understanding of etiologies. To this end, we focus on (1) molecular events that promote the formation of toxic Aβ assemblies, (2) how the presence of Aβ causes perturbations in the biology of Tau, and (3) how disease-associated conformers of Tau or PrP cause cells to die.

The focus of Dr. Schuurmans’ research is on the specification of neural cell fates in the developing central nervous system, in particular in the developing retina and neocortex. She is now applying her knowledge of neural development to understand the injury response, and to mobilize endogenous stem cells for tissue repair. Her lab is also developing lineage conversion strategies for neural cell replacement therapies.
