Welcome to the laboratory of Martin J. Richer, Ph.D., at McGill University in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology. We are also associated with the Rosalind & Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre.
Research in the Richer Lab is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms that regulate both effector and memory CD8 T cell responses. In particular we are interested in the role inflammatory cytokines play in CD8 T cell biology and how CD8 T cells can be manipulated to enhance protective immunity.
