I have a research program in the field of cellular and molecular regulation of endothelial gene expression. The lab is focused on understanding the contribution of endothelial cells to human health and disease. We are especially motivated towards understanding the contribution of important endothelial genes to disease processes and novel aspects of how endothelial genes are regulated.

Professor
Research Location: The Hospital for Sick Children/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Genetics, Genomics & Proteomics

I’m focused on discovering and understanding the function of genes and abnormalities in genes (“mutations”) that cause disease in children and adults. My pathology lab studies tissue changes associated with mutations. My molecular biology lab focuses on R&D in design and production of mutant mouse models, particularly Cas9 RNA-guided nucleases, germ cell cryopreservation, and in vitro fertilization.

PhD
Professor
Research Location: Sunnybrook Health Science Centre/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Brain & Neuroscience
Secondary Research Area: Human Development & Aging

Characterization of novel combination therapeutics to fully recover functioning in Alzheimer’s disease. This work is based on the premise that strategies in clinical trials will have benefit in stabilizing disease progression; to achieve optimal cognitive functioning therapies that address other targets will also be necessary. A focus of these new strategies is to understand the contribution of comorbid diseases to onset and progression of AD.
