New Canada Research Chairs (Announced June 2019)

Canada Research Chair in Disability and Inclusive Development

People with disabilities are often marginalized and are at risk of exclusion from mainstream society. Dr. Aldersey's program of research identifies needs of families affected by disability, then develops and evaluates supports to meet those needs, with a particular focus in low- and middle-income countries. Given the community-embedded nature of her research, she strives to integrate social justice and scholarship by undertaking participatory action research (PAR). PAR seeks to understand the world by working to change it, collaboratively and reflectively. She engages representatives of stakeholder communities in a participatory role that further ensures integration of strengths-based, culturally-relevant, and solutions-driven action.

Canada Research Chair in Language Revitalization and Decolonizing Education

As Indigenous communities around the world work to ensure the survival of their languages, it is becoming clear that the best language planning approaches involve learning opportunities for families and individuals of all ages. Building on current on-reserve and urban research on language revitalization, I will work in partnership with Indigenous communities to identify goals and best practices for education and language planning. By taking a multigenerational approach that focuses on various geographies, I will be able to contribute to larger academic and social discourse on language revitalization, education, and self-determination for today's modern, dynamic Indigenous peoples and communities.

Tier 1

Canada Research Chair in Computational Biology and Biophysics
My research aims to identify causes of cancer progression -  to find which extrinsic and intrinsic factors can contribute to cancer mutation occurrence in DNA – and to discover molecular mechanisms of how these mutations can affect proteins, protein interactions and dynamical .behavior of chromatin. This will be achieved by designing new computational methods that integrate hypothesis- and data-driven approaches, molecular modeling, and machine learning. These studies may offer key insights into the basis of mutagenesis and DNA repair, and their contribution to cancer etiology.
