Maxwell Shafer

img_0189full (1)My name is Maxwell E.R. Shafer (MERS), I’m a developmental and cell biologist currently working on a Ph.D. in Biochemistry at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. I’m interested in how organisms form, the morphogenesis of epithelial tissues, the developmental origin of cancer and molecular evolution. I received both my M.Sc. and H.B.Sc. in Cell and Developmental Biology from the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada, where I worked with Dr. Sashko Damjanovski. My current work is in the laboratory of Dr. Maxime Bouchard at the Goodman Cancer Research Centre where I study the developmental morphogenesis of prostate epithelia and the origins of prostate cancer.
