Our lab is a basic science research group located in the Research Centre at the University of Montreal Hospital CRCHUM. We aim to understand the cellular basis of infertility by unravelling how healthy oocytes (eggs) and embryos are made, specialising in live cellular imaging and Cell Biology approaches.
