Winner of the 2019 CSATVB Scientific Excellence Award - Dr. Paul Kubes
Dr. Paul Kubes, PhD
Professor, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, University of Calgary; Director, Calvin, Phoebe and Joan Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases; Canada Research Chair in Leukocyte Recruitment in Inflammatory Disease
The Kubes lab is committed to understanding complex immune responses in the context of human clinical disease. Our primary focus is to directly visualize the roles of immune cells during inflammation, infection and tissue injury. Our lab is leading the way in directly imaging the immune system using cutting edge technology, including spinning-disk confocal, resonant-scanning confocal, and multi-photon microscopy. By imaging complex cellular behaviors in real time, both in vitro and in vivo, we can now begin to understand how immune cells, such as neutrophils, monocytes, NKT cells and Kupffer cells function under physiological and pathological disease states.
Dr. Kubes is an invited speaker at the Canadian Vascular and Lipid Summit in Banff October 3-6, 2019...if you are not registered already please do so asap by going to www.lipoprotein.ca
