Dr. Walid A. Houry is Professor in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Toronto. Dr. Houry obtained his PhD from Cornell University and then did his postdoctoral training at the Sloan-Kettering Institute in New York City and at the Max-Planck-Institute for Biochemistry in Munich, Germany. He is interested in the general area of cellular stress responses and the role of molecular chaperones and proteases in these responses. To this end, his group utilizes various structural, biophysical, biochemical, proteomic, and cell biological approaches to understand the mechanism of function of these chaperones and proteases. His group is also interested in the development of novel anticancers and antibiotics by identifying compounds that target these chaperones and proteases and result in the deregulation of protein homeostasis in the cell.
