New biochem faculty members

Marlys Koschinsky and Michael Boffa join the department...

This past summer, two new faculty members with expertise in Biochemistry joined the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry:
  • Marlys Koschinsky has come to the University of Windsor from Queens University as the new Dean of Science, and will be heading up a research program focusing on the use of molecular biology, protein chemistry, cell biology, and proteomic techniques for the study of the relationships between structure and function in the apolipoprotein apo(a).
  • Michael Boffa also joins us from Queens' University. His research focuses on the protein TAFI (thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor) and its function as a novel mediator of the balance between coagulation and fibrinolysis.

Welcome to the department!
