Welcome to the Drögemöller Lab
Our lab focuses on using genomics and computational analyses to develop safer and more effective treatments
The Drögemöller Lab uses large-scale genomic and computational analyses to guide the development of novel treatment strategies that offer maximum benefit and minimal harm.
This research is focused specifically on vulnerable and understudied populations (e.g. pediatric and maternal populations) as therapeutic agents are often not designed and tested with these patients in mind.
Dr. Britt Drögemöller is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biochemistry & Medical Genetics at the University of Manitoba. Dr. Drögemöller holds a Canada Research Chair in Pharmacogenomics and Precision Medicine and is appointed as a Research Scientist at The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba (CHRIM), an Adjunct Scientist at the CancerCare Manitoba Research Institute and a Research Affiliate at the Centre on Aging.
It was a pleasure to listen to your final presentations!
The Jack MacDonell Scholarship for Research in Aging and Betty Havens Centre on Aging Graduate Fellowship!
Congratulations on receiving a travel award to attend this course!
Great to see Samah winning the Big Data Challenge at the VADA Summer School and attending the CIHR-IA Summer Program in Aging, Deanne presenting at the Pharmacogenomics Global Research Network Meeting, Deanne and Avital presenting at the Manitoba Neuroscience Network Meeting, Deanne and Feryal presenting at the Canadian Society for Pharmacology and Therapeutics Meeting, and Feryal presenting at Prairie Cancer Research Consortium Conference!
We are so proud of Samah and Feryal for winning the MSc and undergrad categories!
Dr. Drögemöller is currently recruiting graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with expertise in genomics, bioinformatics, pharmacogenomics and precision medicine. Interested individuals should send a recent CV, along with a short cover letter explaining why they are interested in joining the lab.
