Terry Fox Laboratory

Please visit Terry Fox Laboratory website

The mission of the Terry Fox Laboratory is to make novel discoveries in the biology underlying normal development and cancer initiation/progression. The group has longstanding expertise in mammalian systems with focus on normal hematopoiesis/leukemia/lymphoma, normal and malignant mammary tissues, and lineage specification in the gut, but also more recently acquired expertise in yeast genetics. Experimental approaches include genetically engineered mouse models, patient xenograft models, in vitro cell based assays, highly dimension single cell phenotyping, molecular biology/biochemistry, DNA regulation, transcriptomics, epigenetics, and DNA repair.

The faculty of the Terry Fox Laboratory comprise a group of experts with diverse backgrounds in biology and medicine and internationally recognized leadership in normal and leukemic stem cell investigations, innate and acquired immunity, embryo and tissue development, telomere biology and aging, signalling, genomics, live cell banking, cell separation, imaging and molecular analysis, and bioinformatics and data management. Strategies span a full range of studies from the investigation of model organisms to experiments with patient's cells and the initiation and laboratory support of clinical trials.
