-These questions form the basis of our work to understand the mechanisms of normal processes and diseases, such as cancer and neuronal degenerationFor this we are using two well-known nematodes (worm) model organisms //C. elegans// and //C. briggsae//. These tiny animals (roughly 1 mm long) are particularly useful in discovering the roles of conserved genes and pathways in processes that are shared among all eukaryotes.\\+These questions form the basis of our work to understand the mechanisms of normal and disease statesThe model organisms that we use in our lab are well-known nematodes (worm) //C. elegans// and //C. briggsae//.

 Our approach is multidisciplinary and includes techniques in genetics, genomics, molecular biology, bioinformatics, and engineering. We collaborate extensively with other laboratories, both at McMaster and outside, to develop new tools and resources. The applied aspect of our work involves making use of basic research findings and in-house tools to carry out drug discovery projects.\\ Our approach is multidisciplinary and includes techniques in genetics, genomics, molecular biology, bioinformatics, and engineering.
