The Stirling lab is a vibrant research group embedded within the Terry Fox Laboratory at the BC Cancer Agency in Vancouver, Canada. The lab opened in 2014, and was rapidly populated by dynamic trainees working in the field of genome integrity maintenance. The group is highly collaborative with researchers in BC, across Canada, and around the world. We welcome inquiries from potential collaborators and from outstanding candidate trainees.
The Stirling lab aspires to:
(1) Be a hub of rigorous, valuable, and world-class research in the areas of genome dynamics, maintenance, and mutagenesis.
(2) Provide an exceptional training environment for students and fellows that will enable their success as scientists in academia, industry, education, and beyond.
