Outside of the Lab
We have a united team; we have get-together occasions outside of the lab for recreation and charity events. The members of the Verdu Lab have been consistent supporters of the Crohns and Colitis Canada Gutsy Walk. Throughout the year we team up with other Farncombe Institute lab faculty to fund-raise and bring awareness to the foundation’s research.
This page contains recent news from the lab, and events.
