Today, research at the Mandl Lab is officially beginning ramp-up!


Since March 19th, research at the lab has been quiet and at a baseline level - with the majority of our team members remaining at home and working from home, playing their role in minimizing the spread of Covid-19. Many of our lab members have turned their kitchens into mini-lab benches - experimenting in the realms of cooking, baking and cocktails! In addition, the Mandl Lab has donated boxes of PPE to the local hospitals in an effort to support and show gratitude to Montreal's health workers.


As our team begins the return to the official lab bench, taking care to adhere to the strict safety protocols, we look forward to once more returning to our research!
