Guido Veit Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Fellow, McGill University
Dr. Guido Veit received his M. Sc. in Biochemistry at the J.W. Goethe University Frankfurt (Germany) in 2003, where he worked with Dr. Robert Tampé to study the influence of tapasin on the MHC I loading kinetics. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Cologne (Germany) in 2007 where he investigated unconventional collagens in the skin in the laboratory of Dr. Manuel Koch. In 2008 Dr. Veit joined the laboratory of Dr. Gergely Lukacs at McGill University (Canada) for his postdoctoral training to analyze the role of CFTR in the innate immune response of epithelia. Since 2012, as research associate, he is predominantly studying modulators of ΔF508-CFTR biogenesis in an effort to identify small-molecules or biological pathways that allow correction of the ΔF508 folding defect.
