EL-GABALAWY, Hani
Professor - Cross Appointee

Address:
RR149 Rehab/Resp Hospital

Office Phone: (204) 787 2208
Email: Hani.Elgabalawy@umanitoba.ca

Research Interests:  Dr El-Gabalawy is a Professor of Medicine and Immunology and holds an endowed Rheumatology Research Chair at the University of Manitoba. His current research interests centre round the pathogenesis of RA and the mechanisms involved in the initiation of synovial inflammation. Dr El-Gabalawy has established a unique cohort of high risk First Nations family members of RA patients who are being followed longitudinally for the earliest evidence of RA onset. This work is an integral part of an international initiative to develop an understanding of the pre-clinical stages of autoimmune diseases and has been funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research since 2005.

GHIA, Jean-Eric (PhD)
Associate Professor

Address:
431 Apotex Centre

Office Phone: (204) 789-3802
Email: Jean-Eric.Ghia@umanitoba.ca

Research Interests: Dr. Ghia’s group is working on neuro-immune and -endocrine mechanisms that contribute to the development of colonic inflammation. The aim of his research program is to elucidate the role of chormogranins-derived peptides, autonomic nervous system and central disorders during the development of gastrointestinal inflammation and to elucidate the precise mechanisms involved. This may lead in the future to the identification of new specific agents which will open new therapeutic avenues for treating acute exacerbations of ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.

Office Phone: (204) 480-1301
Lab Phone: (204) 480-1329
Email: Sam.Kung@umanitoba.ca

Research Interests: My laboratory studies two major cellular components of innate immunity- natural killer cells and dendritic cells.  These two cell types can exert their immunological functions independently, as well as interact with each other to further regulate their cellular activities.   We aim at identifying factors that regulate the differentiation process and functions in natural killer cell, dendritic cells.  We will also develop novel lentiviral based immunotherapy in cancer, infectious disease and autoimmune disease models.

LIN, Francis (PhD)
Associate Professor - Cross Appointee

Address:
Department of Physics and Astronomy
Faculty of Science
513 Allen Building
Fort Garry Campus

Office Phone: (204) 474-9895
Email: Francis.Lin@umanitoba.ca

Research Interests: Dr. Lin's group targets the complexity of immune cell trafficking using an interdisciplinary approach that integrates engineering tools, mathematical modeling, biology and immunology methods. The main goal is to achieve a quantitative and systematic understanding of immune cell trafficking in complex cellular microenvironments with relevance to cell trafficking mediated diseases such as autoimmune diseases and cancers. Dr. Lin's group is also developing microfluidics-based applications to address questions in infectious diseases, biomedical diagnostics, therapeutics, and tissue engineering through a number of ongoing collaborations

Lab Phone: (204) 789-3965
Email: Aaron.Marshall@umanitoba.ca

Research Interest:
Dr. Marshall's group is working to decode the intracellular signals that control immune cells. By understanding the behaviour and regulation of immune cells at the molecular level, the research will lead to improved understanding of disorders of the immune system such as autoimmune diseases, atopic diseases and chronic leukemia.
