One of the advantages of working in an admin office of an organization that funds stem cell research is that you tend to hear about what’s happening in labs all across the country. So when I heard that some interesting things were happening in the Guy Sauvageau lab, I decided to pay an overdue visit to Montreal to talk to Guy and do some filming in the lab. It was a miserable December day — rain sheeting down sideways — and, well, even if everything didn’t go exactly as planned that day, the lab was warm and welcoming.
While the video footage is not yet ready for posting (stay tuned), I did write an article on the visit, which has been posted in an excellent blog — “The Crux” — run by Lynne Quarmby, a molecular biologist at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver (and a writer of insightful, thought-provoking blogs about research and the realities of being a basic researcher in Canada).
