CIHR Grant Success

The Department of Cell Biology would like to congratulate Professors, Dr. Tom Hobman, Dr. Michael Hendzel and Dr. Richard Lehner for their recent success in the 2016 Canadian Institutes of Health Research competition.  They were each awarded five year project grants to conduct research into Zika virus pathogenicity, the role of DNA-damage-induced RNA in promoting homologous DNA recombination in mammalian cells, and the metabolic role of the lipase, arylacetamide deacetylase (AADAC), in regulating body fat levels.
