The common theme of departmental research programs is molecular medicine: that is, the elucidation of the pathogenesis of disease at the molecular level and the application of this knowledge to the design and implementation of novel therapies. Our established programs include cancer biology, vascular biology, genetics, molecular hemostasis, amyloidogenesis and cholesterol metabolism. Through collaborations with the Queen’s Cancer Research Institute we also have an emerging strength in translational research.
