Storyboard Text

  • While obtaining my Arts degree, I fell in love with science and decided to return to school in pursuit of a medical degree in science
  • I then went on to continue my studies, as well as my research at both Harvard University and the University of California, Berkeley
  • I then went on to study at the University of Montreal, where I achieved my M.D. then after that I obtained my masters degree at McGill University
  • So I decided to bring my discovery to my professor
  • During my studies I came across quite an interesting pattern in the specific cleavage sites amongst many of our bodies specialized molecules that split into necessary chemicals such as insulin
  • Oh my goodness we must bring this forward at once!
  • He then advised me to write a seminal paper on the topic that explained more on my findings. This paper, where I explained the potential of there being an enzyme that split large proteins into essential chemicals, was published in the Canadian Journal of Biochemistry in 1967
  • In the year following my original discovery, I was advised a team, where we were to learn more on the topic of Convertases and determine exactly what they were
  • But it wasn't until 1990 when a new technology was developed that allowed us to actually discover the enzyme, and to this day, there are officially 8 known mammalian Contervases
  • And to this day, Convertases play a major role into the search for the cure on many large scale diseases such as epilepsy and AIDS
  • So that's my story as to how I began and my route to discovering what is now known today as the enzyme Convertases
