Jacques Drouin, D.Sc., MSRC
Dr. Drouin and his team have discovered novel genetic regulators that control the development of certain tissues, such as the pituitary gland, limb differentiation, and certain brain neurons during embryogenesis. They are also studying the mechanisms whereby hormones exert their action on gene expression. Other research projects are designed to shed light on the function of regulator genes that are active in neurons that degenerate in Parkinson’s disease, using that knowledge to develop new therapies.
