Marina Ulanova, MD, PhD
Full Professor at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine
Her research aims at understanding reasons behind increased susceptibility to infections in certain population groups and prevention of severe bacterial infections.
Dr. Ulanova has published over 90 peer reviewed papers and made over 120 presentations at conferences, external seminars and workshops (over 40 as invited speaker).
She holds research grants awarded by the Canadian Immunization Research Network, NSERC, and Pfizer as Principal Investigator, and is a Co-Investigator on 3 NOAMA grants.

Farooq Khan, PhD
Farooq studied biological effect of synthetic analogues of pathogen-associated molecular patterns.
Eli Nix, PhD
Medical Student/ Post Doctorate
Eli's research had a focus on severe infections affecting Canadian indigenous communities, with a goal to understand immunological defense mechanisms against these infections.
Lynnea Lobert, HBSc
Lynnea studied host-pathogen interactions determining outcomes of infections caused by different serotypes of Haemophilus influenzae.
Amanda is attending Guelph University and worked in the lab as a co-op summer student. Amanda's work focused on antibody levels specific to pneumococcal serotypes 6b and 14 in healthy individuals.
