laboratory gathers a team of students, postdoctoral
fellows and research professionals who are combining their efforts
understand how oncogenes and deregulated tumour suppressors promote
the growth, proliferation and survival of cancer cells.
We use mouse genetic, biochemical, molecular and cellular
biological techniques, as well as proteomics, to study oncogenic signal
transduction in normal and cancer cells.
Part of the
Department of Pathology and Cell Biology of the
Université de Montréal, our lab is located at the
Institute for Research
in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC).
