Prof . Patric Choy
PATRICK CHOY, OM, PhD, MD, FAHA, FIACS ; Professor Emeritus; Advisor to the President and Dean of Medicine, University of Manitoba
Dr. Choy, former Associate Dean of Research in the Faculty of Medicine from 1999 to 2009 in University of Manitoba. After his official retirement, Dr. Choy accepted an appointment (pro-bono) as Special Advisor to the President and the Dean of Medicine, University of Manitoba. He also holds several honorary appointments from universities in China, Europe and the US. As an internationally recognized leader in the study of cardiovascular phospholipids and lipoproteins, Dr. Choy’s research established novel connections between lipid metabolism, cardiac arrhythmias and atherosclerosis. His work has been supported by the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the NIH and continuously by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research for 30 years. He has published over 150 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters. He organized many scientific conferences and symposia, and served as the Special Editor for Biochemistry and Cell Biology in 2005 and 2010.
Dr. Choy established the Centre for Research and Treatment of Atherosclerosis with a $1 million grant from the Federated Insurance Companies of Canada and other sources in 1999 and served as its Founding Director for ten years. He also served as President of the Canadian Biochemical Society, Secretary-Treasurer of the Canadian Society of Clinical Investigation, Vice-President of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, and Vice-Chair of the Expert Advisory Committee on Natural Health Products in Health Canada.
As Professor Emeritus, Dr. Choy continues to serve the academic community on editorial boards of several international journals. He is on the Advisory Committee of the Institute for Biodiagnostics, National Research Council of Canada and a Board Member of the Manitoba Medical Service Foundation. He is a founding member and the Honorary Chair of the Canadian Institute of Chinese Medicinal Research.
Prof. Fiona Parkinson
Fiona E. Parkinson , Professor & Head - Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, University of Manitoba. Her research interest focuses on the area including neuropharmacology, adenosine and blood-brain barrier. Using a wide range of techniques, from molecular to behaviour, her laboratory is investigating the cellular sources of neuroactive adenosine and mechanisms by which drugs or diseases enhance adenosine receptor signalling. Current funding for her research is from Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
Prof. Thomas Klonisch
Thomas Klonisch, Professor of Department of Medical Microbiology, Department of Human Anatomy and Cell Science, University of Manitoba. His research interests include: determining molecular signalling, structure/function relationships and proteomic changes mediated by the actions of membrane-anchored proEpidermal Growth Factor (EGF) family members and the relaxin hormone in tumor cells. Identifying functional roles of endocrine disruptors on cell differentiation in newly developed human cellular models.
