Founder, Director and Chair of the Clinical and Scientific Advisory Board
Dr. Mai is Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) in Genomic Instability and Nuclear Architecture of Cancer, Professor of Physiology and Pathophysiology, Biochemistry and Medical Genetics, Human Anatomy and Cell Science, University of Manitoba. Director of The Genomic Centre for Cancer Research and Diagnosis (GCCRD) at the University of Manitoba. She is also Director of The Genomic Centre for Cancer Research and Diagnosis (GCCRD) at the University of Manitoba. She is an internationally known researcher who has more than one hundred publications related to research on Genomics and Genomic Instability. Most recently she has contributed to a library of patents related to her work on 3D Genomic Analysis. She is the recipient of several academic awards including the Braidwood Jackson Memorial Award; the Dr. Saul Highman Memorial Award; the Rh Award (Basic Science); and the J&J Cognition Challenge (2013). She was recognized in 2015 as one of the Top 100: Canada’s Most Powerful Women and recently she was named as Tier I Canada Research Chair in Genomic Instability and Nuclear Architecture in Cancer by the Canadian Institute of Health Research. Dr. Mai has dedicated her life to the research of Cancer and other debilitating diseases. She has been instrumental in the development of innovative 3D analysis of genomic instability, which will help in diagnosing more specifically and earlier several forms of Cancer. This will allow physicians to personalize treatment and improve the quality of outcomes. During the course of more than twenty years of research she has contributed to a portfolio of patents protecting her discoveries. Her vision is to use her discoveries for the benefit of patients everywhere.
