For the past 36 years, Dr. Szewczuk is Full Professor of Immunology and Medicine, Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario Canada. He received his B.Sc. (Hon) in Chemistry (U. of Guelph), M.Sc. in Biochemistry (Guelph), Ph.D. in Immunochemistry (U. of Windsor) and post-doctoral training with Gregory W. Siskind, M.D. in cellular immunology at Cornell University Medical College, NYC. Dr. Szewczuk’s recent research has focused on the role of glycosylation in receptor activation with a particular focus of TOLL-like, nerve growth factor Trk, EGFR and insulin receptors. He has discovered a novel receptor-signaling platform and its targeted translation in multistage tumorigenesis and engineered drug delivery systems.
