Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Hello! I’m Anne-Marie, a post-doc in the Weber lab. I did my undergrad in Microbiology and Master's in Molecular Biology at Université de Montréal, just across the mountain! I continued on the roller coaster to grad school in Cell and Developmental Biology at UNC Chapel Hill with the Maddox labs. Early on during my thesis, I was interested in understanding how organelles regulate and adjust their size to the size of the cell during development. Spending my summers at Woods Hole for the Embryology course really pushed my interest for studying cell biological problems in the animal development context. By joining the Weber lab at McGill, I want to further learn about new cell biological problems like the assembly of non-membrane bound organelles but using biophysical approaches. I believe we must dissect carefully the cellular parameters using simple model organisms like bacteria before trying to study them in developing animals.
Hi, I am a masters student at McGill. I did my undergraduate degree at University of Toronto in physics with a specialization in biophysics.
Hi my name is Megan Couture and I’m majoring in organismal biology and French translation with a minor in interdisciplinary life sciences. My previous experience in biology was a little different than lab work, as you can see in my photo! I worked on a conservation project of an endangered population of Fowler’s Toads (Bufo fowleri) in Long Point, Ontario. I’m excited to now be working in a lab setting on a model organism that I’ve studied for so long.
Hello! My name is Albright Kim and I am currently an undergrad at McGill University where I am pursing a major in Biochemistry. Nova Scotia is where I call home and I’ve had previous laboratory experience working at Dalhousie University. There I conducted some research on a neurological disease called Huntington’s. Now I am delighted to have the opportunity to be part of this lab and excited to see where this research will take me.
Hello! My name is Graydon Tope and I an undergraduate student majoring in both Cellular and Molecular Biology and Anthropology in the Interfaculty of Arts and Sciences. Biology has always been something through which I have found great joy and learning. On any day, you may see me tear up in front of a microscope because I am overcome with the beauty of the quaint, seemingly organized, elegant life forms that are all around us. I am honored and ecstatic to explore the expanses of biology with the Weber Lab!
Hi! My name is David Cohn, and I'm an undergrad student majoring in Quantitative Biology at McGill. I still remember being astounded when I first learned that all life forms were composed of cells. I thought cells must be extraordinary things, if together they could make up such diverse creatures as lions, trees, and even microbes far too small to see. Many years later, I'm no less amazed by the intricate machinery of cells, and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to explore their inner workings with the Weber Lab.
