On Tuesday, Mike toured the Sonenberg Lab at McGill University with Biochemistry researcher Dr. Nahum Sonenberg. Dr. Sonenberg studies the control of protein synthesis within the cell and its importance in diseases such as cancer, obesity, diabetes and neurological disorders.
Although Dr. Sonenberg’s laboratory is primarily focused on cancer research, its findings have also expanded knowledge about autism and memory. In addition, he and his team are now exploring the biological mechanisms underlying pain.
