A warm welcome to Hajar Chihab, the Pantophlet’s Lab’s newest postdoc. Hajar obtained her PhD in Immunovirology from the Chouaib Doukkali University in El Jadida, Morocco, under the primary supervision of Dr. Soumaya Benjelloun. Her doctoral research encompassed many aspects of host-virus interaction in the context of hepatitis B and C infections, from the study […]
Congratulations to two talented undergrad students in the Pantophlet Lab: Yiqiu Yang and Diana Yang! Both received news recently of their successful Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA) applications to the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS). The awards will support them financially as they contribute to ongoing research projects in the lab this Fall (2020). Yiqiu, […]
Vancouver biotech company AbCellera is developing antibodies to treat COVID-19. In the six-minute video below from The Tyee, Ralph Pantophlet is interviewed alongside Véronique Lecault, COO of AbCellera. They explain what antibody treatment is and endeavors to apply it to COVID-19. The video also explains how advances in technology are helping to find and isolate […]
Our latest research contribution to identifying potential hurdles to the elicitation of glycan-specific HIV-neutralizing antibodies has just been published with @SpringerNature in @Scientific Reports! Read here: [article]
Yiqiu, one of our talented undergrad research interns and a 3rd year student in the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, talks to SFU-SURJ (Science Undergraduate Research Journal) about the research that she has contributed to in the lab over the last several months. [article]
Congratulations to Quiana Ang! Quiana has been awarded her second Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA), which will enable her to continue her undergraduate research in the Pantophlet Lab over the summer, and has been accepted as a Master’s student in the Faculty of Health Sciences for Fall 2020!
