Brent D. G. Page, PhD

I am a passionate scientist with a broad interest and expertise in drug discovery and development. With a strong educational background in medicinal chemistry and cancer biology, I am driven to understand how experimental therapeutics function at a molecular level.  Using state-of-the-art chemical biology techniques, we can develop better drug candidates and ultimately bring more effective and safer drugs to patients.  

Originally from Hamilton, Ontario Canada, I had a keen interest in science from a young age. I pursued academic and athletic interests throughout my education. In addition to my research interests, I coach and train within elite sports programs in Sweden in baseball and cheerleading.  I believe many attributes that I have achieved through sports have contributed to my scientific accomplishments. I try to apply different coaching techniques and strategies when mentoring students and teaching.
