Edmond Chan, PhD
I started by obtaining my PhD. at the University of Alberta with in Jim Stone's lab studying RAS signal transduction. I next pursued Huntington disease mechanisms at the University of British Columbia in Michael Hayden's research group. I continued to explore the wonderful world of cell biology by joining Sharon Tooze's lab at Cancer Research UK, London Research Institute, where I began studying autophagy. Based on this, I set up my own research group at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, where I continued to investigate nutrient-dependent cell signalling. More recently, I re-located the lab to Queen's University in Kingston, Canada. My primary role is lab #1 cheerleader and motivator for the group, where I help shape the exciting new ideas that constantly sprout from bright new scientists.
