MD, PhD
Assistant Professor
Research Location: St. Michael's Hospital/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Metabolism & Nutrition
Secondary Research Area: Human Development & Aging

My lab is interested in understanding novel mechanisms of fibrovascular injury in the kidney, using both cell and animal models of disease, with the goal of using the knowledge gained to develop innovative new therapies for kidney disease.

Eldad Zacksenhaus
BSc, PhD
Professor
Research Location: Other (e.g. government, industry, etc.)
Primary Research Area: Cancer
Secondary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology

We are using mouse models, cell and molecular biology and bioinformatics to identify mechanisms of cancer initiation, progression and metastasis, that can be exploited for novel therapy.  We focus on breast and brain cancers, the tumor suppressors Rb, Pten and p53 as well as the HER2 oncogene. We are also studying the effect of the Rb pathway on aging.
