Our Faculty has grown to over 100 exceptional researchers focused in a variety of research specialties
Using the fruit fly to study the development and function of the nervous system and establish models of human disease.
My lab investigates the roles of PIPs using molecular genetics in the fruit fly and the roles of long noncoding RNAs in sperm development.
Our research examines the interactions of pathogenic bacteria with cells of their host.
The Campos Lab is interested in epigenetics & chromatin biology. Focus is placed on histones, and how their functions go awry in certain diseases.
We utilize zebrafish precision models of disease to discover novel genetic causes, pathogenic mechanisms and therapies; a current focus is scoliosis.
We study how small RNA pathways related to microRNAs and RNA interference regulate gene expression during animal development.
My research focuses on manipulating cellular processes essential for replication of multiple viruses as an alternative approach to novel therapeutics.
We are interested in RNA and mitochondria, especially a naturally-occurring Neurospora mitochondrial plasmid that encodes a catalytic RNA called the VS ribozyme.
We study mechanisms underlying neuronal development and function in behavioral and mood disorders using genetic, molecular, and cellular strategies.
My laboratory is focusing on the mechanisms underlying the ability of various stress factors to rescue cell migration defects in C. elegans mutants
Research in the Davidson Lab is aimed at phages, systems used by bacteria to resist phage attacks and how phages overcome these systems
We investigate the epigenetic mechanisms controlling development of the cardiovascular system, and how they are disrupted to cause disease.
We study the role of nutrient transporters, in signalling and metabolic homeostasis.
Mechanisms of cell fate specification, epigenetic inheritance, paediatric diseases models such as cerebral cavernous malformation and neuroblastoma.
We study how cells maintain the integrity genome and how this process is dysregulated in cancer, aging and genetic disorders.
I am interested in studying the human proteins that have the fewest publications, because that is where I believe the most new biology can be found.
We aim to discover basic mechanisms that control gene expression and epigenetic reprogramming and apply this knowledge through induced pluripotent stem cells
Our research is directed at understanding transmembrane signalling by G protein-coupled receptors.
*Professor Emerita* interested in bacterial plasmid segregation/partition
Our group studies cell identity by integrating diverse functional genomics data, particularly focusing on gene co-expression.
We are a signal transduction, systems biology and proteomics lab focusing on signalling pathways and cellular organization
RNA interactions and regulatory roles of human C2H2 zinc finger proteins; human proteins that become essential after viral infection as drug targets
Our research focuses on using precision zebrafish models of human cancer to understand mechanisms related to tumor growth, relapse, and metastasis
Research in the Kafri lab is aimed at single-cell measurements and various analytic approaches to investigate animal cell size
How stem cells build and maintain the brain and discovering drugs and growth factors that mobilize these cells to repair the injured brain and skin.
Research in the Kay laboratory spans a range of disciplines from spectroscopy and biophysics through to biochemistry.
We use modern computational and experimental approaches to solve important problems in biomedical science such as designing protein and peptide-based therapeutics
My fundamental research interest is in the molecular mechanisms of genetic inheritance and cell division.
The Lefebvre lab’s studies neural circuit formation in the brain and retina, in the context of normal development and neurodevelopmental disorders.
Mechanism and function of non-coding small RNA in Mycobacterium tuberculosis; Immune mechanisms of protection against MTB and vaccine development.
We study new innate immune systems that we have discovered to prevent the pathogenic over proliferation of an RNA virus that infects budding yeast.
We focus on using proteomics technologies including mass spectrometry and bioinformatics to identify and characterize proteins activated in cancers
We engineer and analyze human models of neuroinflammation in neurological disorders, using pluripotent stem cells, CRISPR, and new 3D culture methods.
Dr. Okamoto's research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms that control brain functions such as learning and memory.
Modelling human heart development and diseases with pluripotent stem cells with the overarching goal to develop new therapies.
