2020 James Stevenson Distinguished Lecture and Research Day

Tuesday, November 3, 2020
2:00 pm
Online via ZOOM

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Amira Klip as our keynote speaker. Dr. Amira Klip is a Senior Scientist in the Cell Biology Program of Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children and a Professor of Paediatrics, Biochemistry, and Physiology at The University of Toronto. She studies insulin action at the cellular and molecular levels and was first to reveal the insulin- and exercise-dependent translocation of glucose transporters from inside the muscle to its surface. Her work focuses on mechanisms that confer insulin resistance to muscle including engagement of the innate immune system, and more recently on insulin and glucose interactions with microvascular cells.
