BSc, MSc, MD, FRCP(C)
Associate Professor
Phone: 416-864-5858
PhD
Professor
Research Location: St. Michael's Hospital/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Infectious Diseases & Immunopathology
Secondary Research Area: Hematopathology

Understanding how therapeutic antibodies can be used to treat autoimmune disease. We study the ability of novel monoclonal antibodies, as well as antibodies taken from the plasma of healthy blood donors (IVIg) to inhibit disease progression in autoimmunity. We also study how an antibody called "anti-D" is able to prevent haemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn.

PhD
Associate Professor
Research Location: University of Toronto - St. George Campus (downtown)
Primary Research Area: Infectious Diseases & Immunopathology
Secondary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology

Our laboratory is interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms at play in the tug-of-war between viruses and the host. We want to understand how certain retroviruses enter cells and are then antagonized by innate immune molecules. Immunological recognition and restriction of viral pathogens is fundamental for fighting infectious disease.

MD, FRCPC, PhD
Assistant Professor
Research Location: St. Michael's Hospital/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Cardiovascular
Secondary Research Area: Infectious Diseases & Immunopathology

My lab has an interest in how microvascular endothelial permeability is controlled. A number of projects examine how the host-pathogen interaction affects endothelial permeability.  In addition, we are investigating how the movement of critical proteins and hormones across the endothelium is regulated.

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

Dr Lerner-Ellis is a molecular geneticist who serves as Head and Director of the Advanced Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory at Mount Sinai Hospital and an Associate at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research.  In addition to his core interests in molecular diagnostics, as applied to breast and colon cancer, a major aim of his research is to integrate genome sequencing into the general practice of medicine.

MBBS
Lecturer
Research Location: North York General Hospital
Primary Research Area: Cancer
Phone: 416-756-6252
MD, FRCPC
Professor
Research Location: Toronto General Hospital/Research Institute (UHN)
Primary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology

We have identified the molecules tissue factor and fgl2/fibroleukin, which are membrane associated serine proteases. These molecules play pivotal roles in the pathogenesis of viral hepatitis (fgl2/fibroleukin), allo- and xenograft rejection (tissue factor and fgl2).

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

Ren-Ke Li’s research focuses on translational research to apply new insights discovered through basic science research to clinical applications for heart regeneration and repair after myocardial infarction. Research areas are: 1) Cell transplantation into damaged tissue to regenerate myocardium and restore heart function. 2) Tissue engineering to create a muscle graft using stem cells and biomaterials for repair of cardiac defects.
