The Fraser Lab uses systematic approaches in C. elegans to probe basic problems in genetics
Madeline Hayes headshot
Our research focuses on using precision zebrafish models of human cancer to understand mechanisms related to tumor growth, relapse, and metastasis

Our lab is most interested in how embryonic structures are shaped during development. We focus on the early limb bud and branchial arch as models of growing 3D structures.
faculty
We do curiosity-driven research to discover brain tumor vulnerabilities at the interface of cancer biology, neuroscience, and mechanobiology.
faculty
My research focuses on the roles of Iroquois homeobox genes and Hedgehog signalling in development and disease.
faculty
We use integrated genetic and imaging approaches to understand how mitochondria influence development, differentiation and inheritance.
faculty
The Kalish Lab seeks to understand how pregnancy and early life experience shape neurodevelopment and plasticity.
faculty
How stem cells build and maintain the brain and discovering drugs and growth factors that mobilize these cells to repair the injured brain and skin.
faculty
Our lab investigates the gut stem microenvironment in development, stem cell homeostasis and disease such as inflammation and cancer.
faculty
Our lab is using live animal (Drosophila and zebrafish) and genome-scale approaches to understand biological processes.
faculty
The Lefebvre lab’s studies neural circuit formation in the brain and retina, in the context of normal development and neurodevelopmental disorders.
faculty
We study human brain development and diseases using stem cells derived neural cells and organoids.
faculty
Role of RNA-binding proteins in post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in development and disease.
faculty
We study regulatory functions of the non-coding genome by focusing on lncRNAs, inter-chromosomal contacts, and genome organization.
faculty
We study new innate immune systems that we have discovered to prevent the pathogenic over proliferation of an RNA virus that infects budding yeast.
faculty
We develop and apply genome-scale perturbation technologies to explore genotype-phenotype relationships in human and mouse cells for target discovery.
faculty
We engineer and analyze human models of neuroinflammation in neurological disorders, using pluripotent stem cells, CRISPR, and new 3D culture methods.
