NSERC CREATE Biointerfaces Training Program

2011/12-2016/17 • $1,300,000 • PI,CO
Our understanding of the nature of the biological/material interface, or biointerface, impacts all materials in biological media from contact lenses to blood contacting materials to diagnostic test strips and new bioseparation media. The CREATE Biointerfaces Training Program will provide unique...

NSERC CREATE Molecular Imaging Probes training program (CMIP)

2012/13-2015/16 • $1,200,000 • PI,CO
The impact that was felt by the recent shortage of medical isotopes highlighted the importance that molecular imaging and the associated probes has on the health of Canadians and on the economy of Canada. It also demonstrated that there is a need to train a new generation of scientists to...

Overcoming antibiotic resistance through the inhibition of aminoglycoside phosphotransferases (APH).

2013/14-2014/15 • $169,101 • PI,CO
Multidrug resistant microbes have become one of the top global health challenges and place a massive burden on theCanadian health care system. One approach to overcome this problem involves inhibiting the enzymes responsible forconferring resistance to the antibiotic. We have recently discovered...
