Lab

Our lab is in the Gastrointestinal Diseases Research Unit (GIDRU) at Kingston General Hospital:


We are a well-equipped facility, with all the resources needed for cell culture, qPCR, western blot analysis, immunocytochemistry, fluorescence and confocal microscopy.

Our location in KGH gives us access to the Pathology Department, where we can obtain human tissue samples from Crohn’s Disease and Achalasia patients for our studies. We are also just across the street from Botterell Hall, which is convenient for seminars and interaction with faculty and students there.
