University of Sherbrooke. Area of expertise: Immunology. We are using a combination of approaches including mouse genetics, cellular immunology and biochemistry to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms that control differentiation and function of dendritic cells in autoimmune diseases.
Axe et thème porteur de recherche: Diabète, obésité et complications cardiovasculaires.
Together, we are looking at the function of mutant forms of Nlrp12.
University of Beyreuth, Germany. Area of expertise: Neuroimmunology. Together we are researching the role of mitochondria in the neuroinflammation. Annually, we organize international symposiums (Canada-Germany) looking at the most up-to-date research in the field of mitochondria.

Our collaborative project is centered around the role of Nlrx1 in neuronal death.
McGill University. In collaboration with Dr. Juncker, we are developing novel approaches for modeling human disease in vitro, using nano technology based microfluidics probes. Currently, we are working on development of new probes for in vitro focal models of ischemia. Also we are working on high through put approaches to test multiple drugs in vitro.
