John Paul Oliveria
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Currently working on unraveling the mechanisms of Alzheimer's disease progression and resilience utilizing mass cytometry (CyTOF) and high-dimensional imaging (multiplexed ion beam imaging - MIBI).
Previously worked on evaluating the role of immune cells in allergic pathogenesis (IgE+ B cells, regulatory B cells or Bregs, basophils, type 2 innate lymphoid cells, eosinophils).
Collaborated on research projects with a few research groups, which include:
- The Hospital for Sick Children, Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Pediatric Research Academic Initiative in SickKids Emergency (PRAISE) Program
- McMaster Children's Hospital, Division of Urology and the Clinical Urology Research Enterprise (CURE) Program
- St. Joseph's Healthcare Center Hamilton, Division of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery
Research interests include:
- The immunobiology and pathophysiology of allergic diseases (allergic asthma, allergic rhinitis)
- The role and function of regulatory B cells in disease (autoimmunity, inflammation, cancer)
- The role of immune cells (B cells, T cells, eosinophils, basophils) in the pathogenesis of disease
- Single cell analyses and 'omics' technologies including: RNAseq, CyTOF, flow and imaging cytometry
- Translational immunology, clinical drug development and clinical trials, "big data", and machine learning
- Effectiveness of active learning in undergraduate and graduate level education
Michael G. Ozawa
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pathology
Bio Dr. Ozawa is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Pathology with subspecialty focus in Cytopathology, Head and Neck pathology, and Thoracic pathology. He completed his M.D., Ph.D. training at the McGovern Medical School and the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. He then completed residency training in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology followed by fellowship training in Surgical Pathology and Cytopathology at Stanford University. He is board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology as well as Cytopathology. His interests include pulmonary neoplasms as well as neoplasms of the Head and Neck. He also has developed collaborative research interests in utilizing fine needle aspiration (FNA) techniques in the growing clinical application of Chimeric Antigen T Cell (CAR-T) therapy.
