NSERC CREATE in Biological information processing: From genome to systems level

2012/13-2017/18 • $1,650,000 • PI,CO
The core of our program is the training of graduate students to be productive team members, not just research subordinates. Current postgraduate training programs at U of L and in Alberta generally are characterized by a very high standard of science but they have been focused on a limited range...

CIHR Training Program in Regenerative Medicine

2010/11-2014/15 • $1,625,000 • PI,CO
Organ failure is a pervasive medical problem that results in immense personal and economic costs, morbidity, and death. At present, the only truly effective treatment for organ failure is transplantation. The deficiencies of this option are increasingly apparent, and include a chronic shortage...

Stem cells to treat spinal cord injury

2010/11-2013/14 • $1,732,962 • PI,CO
Each year, approximately 1000 Canadians sustain an acute traumatic spinal cord injury and join close to 40,000 paralyzed individuals across our nation who endure one of the most physically and psychologically devastating of injuries. We have recently shown that two novel populations of stem...

Neurogenesis by central nervous system stem cells

2010/11-2011/12 • $310,092 • PI
We discovered neural stem cells in the brains of adult mammals. While these adult neural stem cells hold great promise for brain repair, we must first understand what they normally do. We previously showed that, in mice, the adult neural stem cells send new neurons to a part of the brain called...
