Yanbo Yang - our first M.Sc. Graduate (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 Emily Courage, who has received a Graduate/Postdoctoral Travel Award from the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology to attend the Experimental Biology 2015 conference in Boston.


Welcome to Danielle Gardiner, our new Research Assistant.
