Proteomics pioneer to chair Genome BC-McGill collaboration

Dr. Christoph Borchers, director of the UVic-Genome BC Proteomics Centre, has been jointly appointed as the Proteomics Chair for the Jewish General Hospital at McGill University in Montreal. Borchers is an expert in the use of mass spectrometry to study the structure and function of proteins. At the UVic centre, Borchers directs a research program that applies proteomics technologies to areas such as medical diagnostics, drug development, forestry and alternative fuels. The UVic-Genome BC-McGill collaboration will lead to the development of clinical proteomics applications and the first pan-Canadian proteomics program.
