06/24/2016: The lab gets 5 years of funding to explore metabolic plasticity

07/05/2017: SEB in Gothenburg

In July, I travelled to Gothenburg, Sweden to attend the annual meeting  for the Society of Experimental Biology where I presented some of our recent work on microplastics in zebrafish. As always SEB was an awesome conference with great science and good times with old and new friends there!


08/09/2017: Special Seminar

We are happy to host a special research seminar by Raphaël Lagarde on Wednesday 9th August 9th at 3PM in BB. 3-42. Raphaël is a recipient of a Company of Biologist travelling fellowship and has been visiting the lab for the past 10 weeks to work on the biochemistry of climbing gobies. He will be giving a special seminar entitled: Cliff Fish-hangers: Timing and mechanisms of upstream migration in 2 climbing goby species from Reunion Island”. Everyone welcome!

08/10/2017: Lab t-shirt


Unfortunately, after doing some really cool work on climbing gobies (and other projects), Raphaël had to go back to Réunion Island, hopefully he will visit again soon! But in the mean time we got him a brand new prototype of the new lab t-shirt featuring the new lab logo!



08/16/2017: CFI funding for the new core facility

We are happy and very excited to announce that we have been awarded a Canadian Foundation for Innovation grant in collaboration with Drs. Cassone and Charette  at Brandon University. This will allow us to develop a core facility, the Integrative Biology Core Facility, with state of the art equipment to pursue our research objectives.
