Comparative Biochemistry and Toxicology
Animal biochemistry, physiology, and toxicology research
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Mount Allison University
The MacCormack Laboratory is based out of Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada. The laboratory uses a variety of physiological and biochemical techniques to study how animals adapt to environmental stressors like hypoxia, extreme temperatures, and anthropogenic pollutants.
Our team of researchers is made up of highly qualified undergraduate and M.Sc. research students under the supervision of Dr. Tyson MacCormack. Our studies focus mainly on freshwater fish but also use invertebrate models such as Daphnia magna and Sepia officinalis when appropriate.
Research in the MacCormack Laboratory is supported by Mount Allison University, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation, the New Brunswick Innovation Foundation, and the Canadian Foundation for Innovation.
