OGI awards summer research fellowships to 7 Ontario students
Date:5/25/2011

ll work with Dr. Paul Boutros at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research. Drawing on her experience as an artist, computer programmer and scientific researcher, Ms. P'ng will write and design computer programs to generate graphic visualizations for scientific data. Effective methods of displaying data from the numerous techniques used to evaluate genes in clear and succinct ways are critical to facilitate sharing of information with others and to allow interpretation of experimental results. In addition, as genomics becomes more integrated with medical practice, the new challenge of communicating these complex and voluminous data with patients is emerging. Data visualization is imperative to not only ensure effective communications among scientists, but also to convey information to the general public.

  • Carol Saleh, from Mississauga, studying at McMaster University, will work with Dr. George M. Yousef at St. Michael's Hospital, U of T. She will be working to identify a more accurate prognostic marker to identify prostate cancer relapse risk before or at the time of surgery. There is currently no biomarker that can accurately determine this at present.

  • Brianna Smrke, from Etobicoke, studying at McMaster University, will work with Dr. Jeffrey Lee at U of T. Ms. Smrke will be investigating how viruses such as influenza are able to fuse and enter cells. She will explore the structural diversity of viral fusion proteins, which play a central role in the uptake of viruses by cells, in order to identify common structural architectures that would be an important step towards the development of drugs that are effective against a diverse set of viruses. Such broad-spectrum anti-viral drugs have the potential to fight many devastating and formerly untreatable viral infections.

  • Maria Tassone, from Thornhill, studying at U of T, will work with Dr. Ahmed El-Sohemy at U of T. Ms. Tassone will be examining the links between gen
