Email Stephen

Stephen has recently graduated with an MSc degree from the University of Ottawa, where he worked in Dr. Kyle Cowan’s lab at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario studying the role of post-translational modifications affecting pannexin 1 protein channels. He previously worked with Dr. William Willmore at Carleton University, where he studied transcription factor NFE2L1 turnover in different cell models and volunteered his time with Dr. Sherri Katz by using clinical epidemiology to decipher the clinical predictors of non-adherence to PAP therapy in children.

Stephen has enrolled as a PhD student in the uOttawa Cellular and Molecular Medicine program under the supervision of Dr. Lochmüller, where he is excited to begin researching the role of glycosylation at the neuromuscular junction and examining glycosylation gene deficiencies in CMS.
