Biography :

Nina Jones developed an interest in molecular biology and genetics while pursuing my undergraduate degree here at the University of Guelph. During my Ph.D. training at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Dumont, my research focused on the understanding of signal transduction pathways required for blood vessel formation. This process, known as angiogenesis, occurs during normal development as well as in diseases such as cancer. My interests in using proteins as building blocks to assemble signalling pathways brought me to the laboratory of Dr. Tony Pawson for my postdoctoral fellowship. There, I studied a unique signalling scaffold in the kidney known as the slit diaphragm, and through a combination of biochemical, cellular and genetic approaches, we were able to demonstrate the importance of several adaptor molecules in kidney development and disease. In the fall of 2006, I joined the faculty of the newly-formed Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology. My research continues to investigate the molecular basis of signal transduction, with an emphasis on understanding aspects of embryonic development, kidney function, blood vessel formation and nervous system patterning.
