PhD
Associate Professor
Research Location: Toronto Western Hospital/Research Institute (UHN)

Brain function relies on the efficient processing of sensory information which requires formation and interaction of sensory maps in different areas. Vision is the prevailing sense in several species including humans. How is the visual system network wired? How does it function in a normal and pathological context? These are the questions we are addressing, using state-of-the-art experimental, computational and behavioral approaches.

MD, FRCPC
Professor
Research Location: The Hospital for Sick Children/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Human Development & Aging
Secondary Research Area: Genetics, Genomics & Proteomics

The major focus of research in my lab is to define mechanisms by which secreted growth factors and their cognate receptors control branching morphogenesis, formation of a contractile ureter, and generation of nephrons. We study these mechanisms using primary kidney cell cultures, tissue explants, transgenic mice and kidney organoids.

Maria Rozakis
PhD
Associate Professor
Research Location: University of Toronto - St. George Campus (downtown)
Primary Research Area: Cancer
Secondary Research Area: Metabolism & Nutrition

Our research program focuses on molecular networks implicated in cancer and diabetes. We are investigating signaling pathways contributing to tumor initiation, cancer stem cell maintenance and metastatic dissemination of breast cancers. We are also exploring mechanisms governing insulin resistance and pancreatic β-cell replication important for the design of regenerative therapies for  type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

MD,PhD, FRCSC, FACS, FAAP
Professor
Research Location: The Hospital for Sick Children/Research Institute
Primary Research Area: Cancer
Secondary Research Area: Brain & Neuroscience

My lab studies the molecular biology of human brain tumours.  We have developed model systems to analyze the manner in which brain tumours grow, invade, and evade therapy. Our goal is to increase our understanding of brain tumour biology so that new treatments can be discovered in the lab.
