SGC Neuro

SGC Neuro at McGill University

The Neuro focus will be on the “Dark Genome” targets, under-studied genes, implicated in neurodegenerative disorders, and creating tools, from antibodies to genetically modified induced-pluripotent stem cell lines. The goal is to understand whether or/and how these genes contribute to pathology, and most importantly drive a fundamental shift in neurodegenerative disease research by uncovering new mechanisms and pathways in disease biology, and deliver new targets for therapy.

The SGC Neuro laboratories, under the direction of Dr. Edward Fon, are housed at the Montreal Neurological Institute and the MacIntyre Medical Sciences Building, which are all affiliated to McGill University departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Pharmacology and Therapeutics as well as the Human Genetics.
