Dr. Robert J. Brown - laboratory website

Downtown St. John’s, May 2014


Welcome to our laboratory’s website.  Our interests include the study of lipids and lipoproteins, and their effects on cellular functions.  A variety of in vitro and in vivo methods, plus the use of mass spectrometry to identify lipids, are employed in our studies.

Current research is funded through CIHR, NSERC, and through the Research Development Corporation of Newfoundland & Labrador.


Congratulations to Siobhan Brenton, Emily Courage, Ryan Elliott, and Yanbo Yang, all of whom completed their research projects in the lab and all will be graduating in May 2014!


One Honours position and one 40h MUCEP position are available for Fall 2014.  For more information, please see ‘positions’.
