ABOUT CHRISTINE

Christine grew up in Winnipeg, near the geographical center of Canada. She completed her BSc in Genetics at the University of Manitoba in 1997. She went on to complete her doctorate work in Biochemistry also at the University of Manitoba with the late Dr. Arnold Greenberg. She was focused on the BCL-2 related protein BNIP3 which is now a recognized player in autophagy.

 

Christine was a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Don Cleveland at the Ludwig Institute at the University of California San Diego. She studied the cell biology underlying motor neuron loss in the neurodegenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Her work included study of ALS2 and SOD1-mediated pathogenesis.

 

After her California adventure, Christine returned to the Great White North to establish her lab in 2007 at the CHUM Research Center, an affiliate of the Universite de Montreal, located in downtown Montreal.  She is currently Professor in the Department of Neurosciences, is a former CIHR New Investigator, and a current FRQS Senior Research Scholar.
