Model Organisms

Neuro-Bevel

Researchers in our department use genetic model organisms to gain insight into the fundamental mechanisms of basic biological functions in the human body. Using genetic disease models this research can lead to increased understanding and the development of treatments for a range of diseases.

Some of the genetic model organisms that are used in our department:

Susanne Clee      Shernaz Bamji    James Johnson    Timothy Kieffer    Calvin Roskelley    T. Michael Underhill    Joanne Weinberg

Janel Kopp

Yeast:
Christopher Loewen

Drosophila (fruit flies):
Douglas Allan    Timothy O’Connor      Guy Tanentzapf  Elizabeth Rideout
