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.

GUZMAN, Hector
Adjunct Professor

Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute

HIPFNER, David. R.
Adjunct Professor

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

Research Summary:
Regulation of epithelial tissue size and shape in the developing fly with a particular focus on kinases, that are key transducers of the signals inside cells that control these processes. 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

Humboldt-University Berlin

Research Summary:
The goal of the research in my lab is to understand some of the mechanisms underlying the process of extracting important information about relevant objects or events. The model system we use to study sensory information processing is the electrosensory system of South American weakly electric fish. While to some this may seem like a strange choice of study system, electric fish can actually teach us a lot about principles of information processing in the brain and also about its evolution. To that end, we use a combination of electrophysiological and computational approaches as well as behavioural studies in the field and in the lab.
   

LOREAU, Michel
Adjunct Professor

Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, France
michel.loreau@mcgill.ca

Research Summary:
Theory and modelling linking community ecology, evolutionary ecology and ecosystem ecology, in interaction with experimental work on diversified systems. Main research topics include the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, metacommunity dynamics, and evolution of ecosystems.
