Prof. Jamie Donaldson is the recipient of the UTSC Principal's Research Award, which recognizes and encourages the research activities and achievements of senior professorial faculty members at UTSC.
Prof. Myrna Simpson has been selected as one of three UTSC Research Excellence Faculty Scholars, which recognizes outstanding and innovative world class researchers whose accomplishments have made a major impact in their fields.
Congratulations, Jamie and Myrna!
Prof. Lewis Kay is one of five 2017 Gairdner International Award winners!
We are thrilled to announce that Prof. Lewis Kay is one of five 2017 Gairdner International Award winners. The Gairdner Award is one of the top international prizes recognizing biomedical research. Prof. Kay is being honoured for his work on "the development of modern NMR spectroscopy for studies of biomolecular structure dynamics and function, including applications to molecular machines and rare protein conformations." His contributions in this area have been ground-breaking and have allowed for the study of complex protein systems using NMR. Congratulations on this remarkable achievement, Lewis!
Using new NMR technique, U of T Scarborough researchers to monitor impacts of environmental contaminants at the molecular level
Professor André Simpson is leading a new collaboration funded by the NSERC Strategic Partnership Grant Program to examine the impacts of environmental contaminants at the molecular level and explain why it is toxic.
Partnering with both Professor Aaron Wheeler, who developed the digital microfluidics-microcoil NMR technology that the team will use, and Bruker BioSpin, Simpson's team will examine the complete molecular makeup of contaminants and interpret how specific molecules affect living organisms in real time.

The DNA target determines the dimerization partner selected by bHLHZ-like hybrid proteins AhRJun and ArntFos
The molecular basis of protein–partner selection and DNA binding of the basic helix–loop–helix (bHLH) and basic region-leucine zipper (bZIP) superfamilies of dimeric transcription factors is fundame...
