Lecturer
Research Location: The Hospital for Sick Children/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Brain & Neuroscience
Secondary Research Area: Cardiovascular

As a devoted electron microscopist, I am interested in the utilization of advanced EM methodologies in the study of disease. These include analytical energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry, cryomicroscopy, immunogold labelling, morphometry and electron tomography. As a consequence I have been able to identify changes in diseases I have been studying that might not have been detected using conventional approaches.

MD, FRCPC
Professor
Research Location: The Hospital for Sick Children/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology
Secondary Research Area: Cancer

We study how processes important in normal development are recapitulated in repair processes or dysregulated in pathologic processes involving the musculoskeletal system. We are unraveling the role of signaling pathways such as Wnt and hedgehog, in stem cells, during embryonic development, in tissue repair and regeneration, as well as in neoplasia.

MD, MSc, PhD
Assistant Professor
Research Location: Sunnybrook Health Science Centre/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology
Secondary Research Area: Human Development & Aging

Our lab focuses on skin stem cells and using them for skin regeneration studies.  We employ in vitro and in vivo approaches to enlighten the process of wound healing post injury, identify and track the fate of cell(s) that contribute to the healing.  In collaboration with burn surgeon-scientists and chemical engineering scientists, we aim to create a “skin substitute” that can be used for burn patients.

Irene Andrulis
PhD
Professor
Research Location: Mount Sinai Hospital/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Cancer
Secondary Research Area: Genetics, Genomics & Proteomics

My laboratory conducts multi-disciplinary studies to identify genetic alterations that play a role in breast cancer and sarcoma and to determine their clinical importance. Our goals are to explore the biology of these genetic alterations, to aid in diagnosis and treatment, and to discover novel targets for therapeutics.
