Research associates

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.


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.

Zeinab Dalloul, PhD

Zeinab received her PhD in Immunology from the University of Limoges, France. She is working on the RNA helicase DDX3X and its role in B cells.


Marion Lacroix

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 Lapointe

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.

Lucia Paola Gabrielli Tabarez

Lucia holds a BSc degree in Biochemistry from Université de Montréal and follows her Master degree working on MYC and MIZ-1.
