ALTIERI, Andrew
Adjunct Professor

Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute
507-202-8559, altieria@si.edu

Research Summary:
Marine ecology, Marine conservation
   

BELLINI, Francesco
Adjunct Professor

FBELLINI@PICCHIO-INTL.COM

Background:
Dr. Bellini immigrated to Montreal in 1967 and aspired to become a full fledged scientist, enrolling in night classes at Concordia University. He followed up his BSc with a PhD in organic chemistry from the University of New Brunswick. Through BioChem Pharma, the Montreal based firm he co-founded in 1986, Dr. Bellini catapulted Canadian biopharmaceutical research to global prominence. By the late 1980s, in collaboration with the late Bernard Belleau, a McGill graduate and chemistry professor, Dr. Bellini developed and commercialized 3TC, the first anti-HIV compound drug, which remains the cornerstone of combination HIV/AIDS infection therapies. He gave $10-million of his personal fortune in 2002 to get the Life Sciences Complex started.
   

CHARRON, Frédéric
Adjunct Professor

FAGOTTO, François
Adjunct Professor

Centre de Recherche de Biochimie Macromoléculaire
CNRS (Centre national de la recherche scientifique), Montpellier, France

Research Summary:
Cellular mechanisms controlling cell-cell adhesion and cell migration during Xenopus gastrulation.
   

GUZMAN, Hector
Adjunct Professor

Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute
Apartado 0843-03092, Balboa, Republica de Panama, 507-212-8733, guzmanh@si.edu

Research Summary:
Ecology and population dynamic of coral reefs; sclerochronology; conservation biology; human impacts on marine ecosystems, coastal management and marine pollution.
   

HIPFNER, David. R.
Adjunct Professor

IRCM, 514-987-5508
david.hipfner@ircm.qc.ca

Research Summary:
Dr. Hipfner has continued to study how epithelial tissue size and shape are controlled in the developing fly. In particular, his group has focused on a class of proteins, called kinases, that are key transducers of the signals inside cells that control these processes. By focusing on kinases that have clearly identifiable counterparts in more complex animals, this research will provide basic insights into how tissue growth and organization are regulated in humans, and how perturbation of this regulation may contribute to the establishment and progression of tumours.
   

KRAHE, Rudiger
Adjunct Professor

Research Summary:
Neuroethology. Information processing in sensory systems using behavioural, electrophysiological, computational, and neuroanatomical approaches. Animal communication studies in the lab and in the field.
