WHAT DO FRUIT FLIES HAVE TO DO WITH IT?
How does gene expression change during the lifespan of an organism, in response to environmental changes and disease?
The Gamberi laboratory studies the spatio-temporal regulation of messenger (m) RNA translation and its effects on cell and organismal polarization in normal homeostasis and disease employing the genetically tractable model of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.
We are always interested in having creative and hard working students join the lab! Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with my current areas of research.
We welcome inquiries from students with suitable academic qualifications who are interested in pursuing a research-based MSc or PhD or a course-based Graduate Diploma in Biotechnology & Genomics. Please contact the appropriate faculty member or program director of your program of interest for further information.
Partners and collaborators
Chiara Gamberi received three consecutive grants from the Concordia University Part-Time Faculty Association’s Professional Development Fund to support her research on the use of fruit flies to identify new treatments for polycystic kidney disease. In addition, the project received funding from BH BioScience (CEO Sam Tayar MBA, Felix Polyak Ph. D., and Roman Rozencwaig, M. D. C. M.), through the MITACS Canada program.
