Juan Ianowski Ph.D.

Associate Professor

Dr. Juan Ianowski is an associate professor at the Department of Physiology, University of Saskatchewan. Juan was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina where he graduated with a degree in Biology from the University of Buenos Aires. Later, he enrolled in the PhD program at the Department of Biology, McMaster University where he graduated in 2004. He received postdoctoral training under the supervision of Dr. John Hanrahan at the Department of Physiology, McGill University where he studied the function of airway submucosal glands and they role in CF airway disease. After a second posdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Biology, University of Toronto at Mississauga. Dr. Ianowski joined the University of Saskatchewan in 2009. Since joining the University of Saskatchewan, Juan Ianowski has study the pathobiology of cystic fibrosis airway disease in CFTR knockout pigs using synchrotron-based imaging techniques. Juan Ianowski's research exploit the strengths of the University in large animal research facilities and expertise, and the Canadian Light Source, the only synchrotron in Canada. Over the last few years Dr. Ianowski and his collaborators have developed synchrotron-based imaging methods to study the productions of fluid in the airways of swine in vivo. These techniques have been recently used to study CFTR knockout pigs, a model of cystic fibrosis.
