About Terry Fox Laboratory
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 Terry Fox Laboratory is currently composed of 13 Scientists dedicated to cancer research, who oversee approximately 50 graduate students, 35 post-doctoral fellows, 50 undergraduate students, and 60 additional highly qualified technical and support personnel.
