Assistant Professor
Research Location: University of Toronto - St. George Campus (downtown)

Clinical presentation and treatment outcome of chronic oral disease, periodontitis, is complicated by diabetes mellitus because of immune dysbiosis. My research is focused on elucidating the role of adaptive immune dysbiosis in periodontal disease and DM. Immunomodulation by use of specialized nano-carriers with cell-activators can overcome this challenge with significant improvements in healing and overall treatment outcome.

MD, FRCPC
Professor Emeritus / Emerita
Research Location: Sunnybrook Health Science Centre/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Infectious Diseases & Immunopathology

My research interests are primarily related to understanding the mechanisms and epidemiology of healthcare-associated infections, especially those due to antibiotic-resistant organisms, as well as evaluating methods for the diagnosis, management, and prevention of infections caused by these organisms.

PhD
Associate Professor
Research Location: Toronto Western Hospital/Research Institute (UHN)
Primary Research Area: Brain & Neuroscience
Secondary Research Area: Genetics, Genomics & Proteomics

Our research program studies developmental and adult brain disorders. We use genetically engineered mouse models and patient stem cell-derived neural cells (2D, 3D organoids) as our model systems. We identify pathogenic mechanisms that contribute to neurological disorders with next generation sequencing, proteomics, electrophysiology and imaging. Our goal is to identify or develop novel therapeutics that reverse clinical conditions.

BSc, MSc, PhD, FCCMG
Assistant Professor
Primary Research Area: Genetics, Genomics & Proteomics
Secondary Research Area: Cancer

Our lab is primarily interested in chromosomal changes occuring in cancer.  We provide clinical analysis for primarily adult cancer patients with a focus on hematological malignancies.  Primary techniques include karyotyping and FISH but research and translational studies are also being developed using SNP arrays and next-generation sequencing.
