Research AssistantEmail Jarred
Jarred Lau graduated with a BSc (Biology and Biotechnology) from Carleton University November 2018. During his undergraduate studies he worked as a co-op student for Agriculture and Agrifood Canada under Dr. Sara Martin where he used flow cytometry to study the evolutionary genetics of the Brassicacea family of plants. He also worked in Dr. Wong’s Lab at Carleton investigating antimicrobial resistance to monensin in soil dwelling bacteria to complete his undergraduate thesis.
Jarred graduated with an MSc in Cellular and Molecular Medicine from the University of Ottawa investigating genetic causes of congenital myasthenic syndromes (CMS).
Currently, Jarred is continuing his work as a Research Assistant in the Lochmuller Lab and is developing optogenetic zebrafish models for GNE myopathy and CMS. Jarred is also working to streamline a high throughput workflow using zebrafish for the validation of novel genes and therapeutics for neuromuscular disorders.
