Tim Storr

Dr. Tim Storr is currently an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry at Simon Fraser University (SFU). He obtained his PhD from the University of British Columbia with Professor Chris Orvig studying medicinal inorganic chemistry, and more specifically the development of therapeutic agents to treat diabetes and Alzheimer’s. He then studied metalloenzyme mimics at Stanford with Professor T. Daniel P. Stack as a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) post-doctoral fellow.

In 2008, he joined the faculty at SFU where his inorganic chemistry research program targets the development of new chemical tools to diagnose and treat disease. His research team at SFU is focused on designing new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, Wilson’s disease, and cancer. He actively collaborates with researchers at the BC Cancer Agency and TRIUMF. Storr is funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar Award.
