Centrosome biogenesis and function


Ph.D.:  Yale University
M.Sc.:  University of Montreal
B.Sc.:  University of Montreal

Fields of Interest:

  • Cellular and Molecular Structure and Function
  • Functional Genomics and Proteomics


Research Interests:

Our laboratory studies several facets of centrosome biogenesis and function, with a particular emphasis on how their perturbation can lead to genome instability, developmental diseases and cancer. Using functional genomic approaches and cutting-edge microscopy and biochemistry, our overarching goal is to identify and study novel proteins required centrosome and to investigate their potential role in development and diseases.
