Dr. Mads Daugaard is Head of the Molecular Pathology Laboratory, a Senior Research Scientist at the Vancouver Prostate Centre and an Assistant Professor for the Department of Urologic Sciences at the University of British Columbia. 

Dr. Daugaard is a molecular biologist specialized in tumour-associated stress signaling pathways and tumour targeting systems. His ongoing research focuses on molecular and biochemical events underlying alternative polyadenylation of mRNAs, chromatin context-dependent DNA repair, and development of resistance to chemotherapy. Another aspect of Dr. Daugaard’s research relates to discovery and development of novel tumour targeting systems based on parasite-derived recombinant proteins relevant for therapeutic and diagnostic applications in cancer.
