Some of the equipment we obtained includes Western blot apparatus, microplate reader, light microscope and histology apparatus. We are grateful to Lucas, MSc student in pharmacology for his invaluable assistance in delivering items to the lab.

The Lab - We have finally landed on earth and it feels like heaven again! Deep in the research centre of Sherbrooke university and between the walls of the immunology department, we have found our home. More specifically, 4th floor of the CRCHUS.
