Research summary

Dr. Susan Logue's research delves into the mysterious inner workings of our cells, specifically the unfolding protein response (UPR) - a critical cell stress response that helps to maintain cellular health. By studying the UPR, Dr. Logue and her team aim to uncover how it can contribute to the progression of diseases such as cancer. Using cutting-edge cell biology techniques, they map out the intricate UPR signaling networks and investigate how they influence a cell's intrinsic characteristics and communication with other cells. The research themes of her lab include cell signaling, proteostasis, inflammation, and cell death, making it a hub of exciting discoveries and breakthroughs. Dr. Logue's lab is affiliated with the Research Institute of Oncology and Hematology (RIOH) and the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba (CHRIM), providing ample opportunities for collaboration and access to resources, making it a prime destination for researchers looking to make a significant impact in the field of cell stress response and disease.

Dr. Susan Logue is an assistant professor at the University of Manitoba, who joined the institution in 2019. She completed her PhD in biochemistry at the National University of Ireland Galway, followed by postdoctoral training at Trinity College Dublin and National University of Ireland Galway. Her past training and expertise lies in understanding cell signaling pathways, in particular those pathways that trigger cell death and cell stress responses. Dr. Logue has published extensively in the areas of cell death and cell stress, and has been the recipient of several national awards, including a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair and a Science Foundation Ireland Starting Investigator Award. She is currently accepting graduate students for Master's and PhD programs.
