CORE Announces New Appointments

Dr. Alex Hui

CORE announces the arrival of Dr. Alex Hui as their new Head of Biosciences. Dr. Hui completed his optometry training and PhD at the University of Waterloo School of Optometry & Vision Science and CORE. He is an author on more than 30 peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed publications and has been an invited speaker at conferences worldwide.

In addition to drug delivery systems, his research has been focused on ocular therapeutics, myopia control, and contact lenses. Dr. Hui is also an associate editor for Clinical and Experimental Optometry.

Dr. Chris Lourenco Nogueira

Dr. Chris Lorenco Nogueira is originally from Brazil and did her BSc and MSc in Pharmacy and PhD in Microbiology/Biotechnology. A substantial period of her scientific experience involves microbiology research including bacteriology, molecular epidemiology, taxonomy and diagnosis of infectious diseases.

In 2020, she did a postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Marc Aucoin, studying the ability of contact lens solutions to kill various coronavirus strains, as well as their binding to CL materials. This project was in collaboration with Drs. Lyndon Jones and William Ngo.

Her work at CORE will be focused on microbiology and cell culture research and involve a continuation of coronavirus research and adenovirus research.

Dr. Stephanie Wong

CORE announces that Dr. Stephanie Wong has joined the CORE team as a Clinical Associate. She completed her Doctor of Philosophy in Vision Science at the University of Waterloo and her Optometry degree at City University in England. During her PhD she designed and tested a new instrument to measure tear evaporation. The device was used to compare different contact lenses and to examine the effect of an artificial lubricant on people with and without dry eye. Most recently she was the clinic manager of a research group that conducted dry eye and soft contact lens trials. Her research interests include the diagnosis and management of dry eye and contact lens discomfort.
