Resistance development to parasiticides has been a problem in both terrestrial and aquatic environments. A major challenge exists in early detection of resistance emergence due to the low frequency at which resistant organisms can occur initially within a population and the difficulty in detecting t...

Allergic diseases are a major medical concern with increasing prevalence in the world. Inflammation is one of the hallmarks of allergic diseases. Long chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) have been shown to inhibit allergic inflammation, but their direct effect on activation of the mast cel...

Following stroke, impairments in arm function are common motor deficits in survivors, affecting thousands of people each year. A useful technique used in clinical rehabilitation of patients with arm impairments is to force use of the impaired arm through constraint of the unaffected (or less affecte...

Effective control of parasitic sea lice (including Lepeophtheirus salmonis and Caligus elongatus), is a major challenge currently facing sea cage salmon aquaculture. Emamectin benzoate (EMB; SLICE®), a macrocyclic lactone (ML), has been the drug of choice for sea lice treatment over the past decade...

The American lobster (Homarus americanus) is harvested along the eastern seaboard of North America and forms the economic backbone of many small fishing communities in Atlantic Canada and the northeastern United States. The industry sets minimum size (carapace length) for harvesting American lobster...

In 2005, trichomonosis emerged as a new cause of substantial mortality in United Kingdom (UK) greenfinch (Carduelis chloris) and chaffinch (Fringella coelebs) populations. Similar to the UK, in the summer and fall of 2007–2009 and 2011, mortalities due to trichomonosis occurred in the Canadian Mar...

Potato farming and lobster fishing are two important industries on Prince Edward Island. However for both industries to be sustainable, they must be managed responsibly. Recently, agricultural runoff has been suspected to have caused numerous fish kills in rivers throughout the island. Although a pe...

The American lobster (Homarus americanus) is the most economically significant commercial fishery species in Canada. The Canadian lobster fishery provides tens of thousands of jobs, and is the economic driver of hundreds of rural communities in Atlantic Canada and Quebec. The adult lobster is suscep...

SOXC transcription factors are key transcriptional regulators that have been shown to control self-renewal and differentiation in tissues during development in vivo, but have not been studied in the mammalian kidney. Our lab has previously demonstrated that all three members of the SoxC genes family...

Obesity has become an increasingly common health condition over the last several decades. It has been estimated that this largely preventable disease affects over one billion people worldwide and that its prevalence will have doubled by the year 2030. Currently, obesity is the leading cause of preve...
