We would like to welcome to the department our newest faculty member, Dr. Ryan Wylie, who officially joined us last week.  Ryan comes to us from MIT and Harvard Medical School, where he has held a Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship with Profs. Daniel Kohane and Robert Langer.  Ryan grew up in Montreal, obtained a BSc in Biochemistry at Concordia University, and then completed a PhD in Chemistry with Prof. Molly Shoichet at the University of Toronto.  His research interests center on the design of "smart" materials for the study of cell-matrix interactions and the synthesis of novel therapeutic agents for the treatment of cancer; I know he'll be happy to elaborate on that for anyone who's interested in learning more.  His first teaching assignment is our 2nd-term Level 2 organic chemistry course for chemists and chemical biologists, Chem2OD3/ChemBio2OB3.
