Welcome to the Rocheleau lab website. We’re a research group at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. Our research aims to understand the mechanisms that regulate two fundamental cellular processes, cell signaling and protein trafficking, and interactions between these processes using genetic, cell biological and biochemical approaches. We use the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans as a model system. This simple worm allows us to study gene function, not only at the cellular level, but also in the context of animal development and physiology. The high conservation of genes between C. elegans and humans, means that findings made in the worm, are often relevant in human health.
