MD, PhD
Professor
Research Location: St. Michael's Hospital/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Cardiovascular
Secondary Research Area: Hematopathology

We investigate the role(s) of adhesion molecules (in particular the beta3 integrin & GPIb alpha complexes) involved in clot formation & their implications for hemostasis (incl. bleeding disorders) & thrombotic diseases (ie heart attack & stroke). We study allo- & autoimmune diseases related to bleeding disorders such as immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) & fetal & neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenic purpura (FNAIT).

MSc, MPhil, PhD, FCCMG
Assistant Professor
Research Location: Mount Sinai Hospital/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Genetics, Genomics & Proteomics
Secondary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology

My research focuses on identification of genomic copy number variants associated with developmental disorders and development of new tests to improve diagnosis of the genetic disorders. I am also interested in implementing new genomic technologies in the clinical setting. In our laboratory, we use high density microarray and other cytogenomic and molecular tests for prenatal and perinatal diagnosis.

Assistant Professor
Research Location: Toronto General Hospital/Research Institute (UHN)
Primary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology
Secondary Research Area: Cancer

My lab focuses on colorectal cancer research and specifically colorectal cancer-initiating cells. We are interested in studying clonal cooperation and novel therapeutic strategies. We are also interested in studying the role of the microbiome and how it influences primary tumour growth, as well as, metastases.

Primary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology
Secondary Research Area: Cardiovascular

We study the role of calreticulin, a ubiquitous calcium-binding chaperone of the ER/SR, which affects calcium homeostasis and gene expression, in ES cell choice of fate.  We discovered that calreticulin acts as a switch either promoting (bone) or suppressing (fat) stem cell differentiation, while it seems to deregulate cardiogenesis.

Dr. Parks’ research interests center around the placenta.  Most recently, his work has involved two interdependent areas—assessing the relation of placental pathology to early onset cardiovascular disease in women and more rigorously systematizing placental pathology diagnoses.

MD
Associate Professor
Primary Research Area: Cancer
Secondary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology

My research involves the study of women's health pathology. It focuses on the discovery and application of novel tools (molecular, immunohistochemical, morphometric) in the histopathologic diagnosis of diseases of the breast and female reproductive system. It also focuses on the development of practical diagnostic algorithms in gynecologic pathology.
