Dynamic technical training in modern biomedical research
The MRCCT is an ideal multidisciplinary training environment.
All MRCCT laboratories apply modern techniques in molecular biology, cell biology, and biochemistry. Training and research activities encompassing genetics, cell biology, microbiology, immunology, and biochemistry take place in a dynamic, multidisciplinary workspace.
Up to eight principal investigators run individual laboratories in an open concept space on the third floor of the Bellini Life Sciences Building. This layout is designed to facilitate interactions between researchers and trainees and access to our state-of-the-art facilities.
Research teams also share easy access to instrumentation rooms (tissue culture, centrifugation, microbiology, FACS, etc. …) and the core facilities of the Life Sciences Complex, including a large animal care centre, a constellation of imaging stations, and a transgenic core. Trainees also have the use of shared study rooms.
Trainees learn to:
– Work with the modern tools and techniques applied in mouse genetics.
– Analyze immune cell types with techniques such as fluorescence cell sorting, bone marrow transplantation, and functional assays in vitro and in vivo.
– Manipulate pathogens while following CL2 and CL3 safety protocols.
