MOROY LAB MEMBERS
Tarik Möröy, PhD
Professor IRCM and UdeM
Riyan Chen, PhD
Riyan originally came from China where he obtained his PhD to the USA. After finishing his postdoctoral training at the University of Utah and the University of Minnesota, he joined the IRCM. He works on the biochemical functions and interactions of the Gfi1, Gfi1b and Miz-1 proteins.
Hugues Beauchemin, PhD
Hugues obtained his PhD degree from Université de Montréal in Molecular Biology and did his postdoctoral training at the Montreal Children Hospital, McGill University in Montreal. He is currently studying the role of Gfi1b in megakaryopoiesis and erythropoiesis.
Julie Ross, PhD
Julie received her PhD in molecular biology from Université de Montréal and joined the Moroy lab in 2012. She is interested in the role of transcription factors in gene expression and studies the role of Miz-1 in the development of normal and cancer B-cells.
Jennifer Fraszczak, PhD
Jennifer is from France and holds a PhD degree from the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon. She works on the role of Gfi1 in early lymphoid differentiation, lineage commitment and more recently on the implication of this transcription factor in the process of myeloid leukemogenesis.
Charles Vadnais, PhD
Charles received his bachelor's degree in Biochemistry and PhD in Biochemistry from McGill University. He currently investigates the role of Gfi1 in the cellular response to DNA damage with the objective of understanding how this may apply to the response of cancer cells to radiotherapy and chemotherapy and to the development of improved treatments.
Kaifee Arman, PhD
Kaifee received his PhD in Medical Biology from the University of Gaziantep, Turkey. He is working on the identification of long non coding RNAs that are regulated by Gfi1 during myeloid differentiation and leukemia.
Marion obtained her Master's degree in Molecular Biology and Systems Biology from Université de Montréal (IRIC) and joined the lab as a graduate student in May 2017. She works on the role of DDx3x in lymphoid leukemia and lymphoma
Mathieu holds a BSc degree in Biochemistry from Université Laval in Québec City, a certificate in “Génie Génétique” from Université Laval and a certificate in administration from UQAM. He oversees the genotyping of all gene modified mouse lines in the laboratory.
Thannina Hamadou, undergraduate student at Université de Montréal, département de microbiologie, infectiologie et immunologie
Marie-Lou Faquette is an undergraduate student from Université de Montréal, département de biochimie et médecine moléculaire
