Quaid Morris is a Canada CIFAR AI Chair at the Vector Institute and a professor at the Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research at the University of Toronto.
Morris’ research interests focus on proteomics and functional genomics datasets are integrated in order to define and stratify cancers according to their distinctive molecular signatures. As well, he works on the underlying signal transduction and metabolic networks, and their regulation by post-translational modifications, are then molecularly characterized for their contributions to cancer phenotypes.
