LIFMET

Laboratory for Functional and Metabolic Imaging

LIFMET


Metabolic reactions are the end-product of protein and gene expression and often at the heart of many diseases. Our lab is interested in the non-invasive measurement of metabolic processes and function. We are developing new approaches (multinuclear spin physics and metabolic modeling, among others) allowing to measure metabolic reactions in vivo hitherto inaccessible, in the context of biomedical problems of interest in rodent models of health and disease (neurochemistry and diabetes research, among others), as well as with human volunteer subjects.

 

Teaching

The lab is passionate in its mission to transmit our knowledge at the freshman (propédeutique), undergraduate (master) and at the graduate (PhD) level.

Student projects

We accept undergraduate students for lab rotations, TP and master projects on an ongoing basis.
