Dr. Czubryt completed his B.Sc. (Honours) in Biotechnology at the University of Manitoba and later obtained his Ph.D. in Cardiovascular Physiology, including training as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre. He is currently a Principal Investigator of Molecular Pathophysiology at the St. Boniface Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, as well as a Professor in the Department of Physiology and Pathophysiology at the University of Manitoba.
Given that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among men and women, Dr. Czubryt’s lab has taken on the challenge of furthering our understanding on the relationship between genes and heart disease. His lab has produced ground breaking findings on the regulation of genes and proteins involved in cardiac fibrosis and heart enlargement during disease and aims towards developing products and therapies to optimize patient care.
Dr. Czubryt will be speaking about his training and career in research, skills important to academic research, and provide perspective on how to translate his work to patient care. He will discuss how his lab works with others in Canada, the US and other countries to move our research forward, and how they prepare for patent filings.
To learn more about Dr. Czubryt and his research, join us on Monday, February 13th in 118 St. John’s College from 6:00-7:00 pm. Light refreshments will be provided before the presentation begins!
