Dr. Kenneth B. Storey, Ph.D., F.R.S.C., is a Professor of Biochemistry at Carleton University in Ottawa and holds the Canada Research Chair in Molecular Physiology. He received his B.Sc. from the University of Calgary and his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia. Ken is a world leader in the field of biochemical adaptation. He uses tools of enzymology, protein chemistry and molecular biology to identify the adaptations of gene regulation and enzyme structure/function that support amazing animal phenomena including hibernation, freezing survival, estivation and anoxia tolerance with a particular focus on the mechanisms metabolic rate depression that support these phenomena. Ken is a prolific author and speaker – he has over 1000 publications to his name and has given hundreds of talks around the world. Ken won the 2010 Flavelle medal in Biological Sciences from the Royal Society of Canada, “CryoFellow” of the CryoBiology Society in 2012 and the 2011 Fry medal from the Canadian Society of Zoologists.
