Biography

Dr. Jude Uzonna obtained a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree with high distinction from the University of Nigeria in 1990 and Ph.D. in Immunology in 1998 from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. After a brief postdoctoral fellowship at the same university, he spent another 4 years of postdoctoral fellowship training at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia USA. He was recruited to the department of Immunology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Manitoba in 2004. Dr Uzonna’s research program focuses on understanding cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate immunity to infectious diseases, particularly those caused by protozoan parasites. He is particularly interested in host and parasite factors that regulate induction, maintenance and loss of protective immunity, with a view to exploiting the information gained from these studies for the development of effective vaccines and vaccination strategies against these diseases. In addition, he is interested in understanding immunomodulatory mechanisms that regulate the pathophysiology of sepsis and septic shock. Dr Uzonna is currently an Associate Professor of Immunology at the University of Manitoba and the Leader of Parasite Vaccines Development Laboratory research group. He was a recipient of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) New Investigators Award and currently holds the Manitoba Health Research Council (MHRC) Chair in Infectious Immunology. He is a member of several professional organizations including Canadian Society for Immunology, American Association of Immunologist and the American Association of Microbiologists. He is a recipient of numerous academic and research awards, the most recent being the Ken Hughes Award for outstanding achievement in biomedical research.

Research Interest

Dr. Jude Uzonna's research interests are Cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate immunity to infectious diseases, particularly those caused by protozoan parasites.
