Dr. Valérie Langlois
Multi-disciplinary research program that investigates the effects and the mechanisms of action of environmental contaminants with a focus on the relationship between molecular to physiological effects.
Diana Flood, Ph. D. Candidate. Assessing the cross-regulation between the thyroid hormones and the androgens in amphibians. Co-supervised with Dr. Bob Montgomerie, Department of Biology, Queen’s University.
Sonja Bissegger, Ph. D. Candidate. Regulation of androgen metabolism in frog development.
Justine Mathieu-Denoncourt, M. Sc. Candidate. Toxicity and endocrine disruption of phthalates in amphibians.
Laura is doing her honours thesis in Ecotoxicology from the School of Environmental Studies of Queen’s University. She is studying the oxidative stress profile in double crested cormorant blood from non-contaminated and methylmercury contaminated areas in the Great Lakes. She is co-supervised by Dr. Linda Campbell (Saint-Mary’s University) and mentored by Raphaël Lavoie (Queen’s University).
Jeriel Joseph Soriano
OCdt Jeriel Joseph Soriano will be doing his Chemistry honours thesis (option Health Sciences) in our laboratory on the Toxicity, Bioaccumulation, and Endocrine Disruption of Amphibians Exposed to Industrial Dyes.
Grant has joined our lab as a Research Assistant. He will be involved in the DY7 project.
Chris is completing his final placement for his Biotechnology degree in our laboratory. He will learn a lot about frogs!
