Breast cancer has to invade the breast to be able to spread.  It is the two steps of invasion and spread beyond the breast (metastasis) that result in breast cancer deaths.   I believe that the study of these changes will lead to the identification of potential diagnostic, prognostic and predictive markers and also valuable therapeutic targets.

PhD
Associate Professor
Research Location: University of Toronto - St. George Campus (downtown)
Primary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology
Phone: 416-978-8782
MD, PhD, FRCPC
Assistant Professor
Research Location: Toronto General Hospital/Research Institute (UHN)
Primary Research Area: Cardiovascular
Secondary Research Area: Infectious Diseases & Immunopathology

The leading cause of death worldwide is cardiovascular disease. We focus on the role of immune cells (macrophages and dendritic cells) in cardiac injury and tissue regeneration. Using a variety of cardiac injury models (ischemia, hemodynamic strain & viral infection), we explore how individual immune subsets control the balance between protective and pathological healing, both in mice and in patients with cardiovascular disease.

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

The Fish lab investigates the molecular mechanisms that control endothelial cell biology. We are seeking to decipher the signaling pathways and downstream transcriptional mediators that control responses to differentiation signals (e.g. artery/vein specification and angiogenesis) as well as pro-inflammatory factors. We have identified key roles for noncoding RNAs such as microRNAs in modulating signaling pathways in endothelial cells.
