Situated at the IRCM in Montreal, our team studies the biological functions of RNA subcellular localization and how these processes are altered in disease settings. Our lab is affiliated with two of Canada’s top research universities, the University of Montreal (Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Medicine) and McGill University (Division of Experimental Medicine), offering a diverse and multi-disciplinary training environment.
