The Krause lab offers education and training in the areas of molecular and developmental biology, genomics, proteomics and ribonomics. At present, the lab consists of 1 undergraduate student, 4 graduate students, and 4 postdoctoral fellows. One or two undergraduate students are employed each Summer. Technical support is provided by three technicians and one part-time fly food technician. The lab and department are well funded and equipped. Salaries are made possible by operating grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the National Cancer Institute of Canada. In addition, the Department holds annual competitions for postdoctoral fellowships. Other Canadian and International funding agencies also provide funding for postgraduate training support. Students in the lab all belong to the graduate department of Molecular and Medical Genetics. Interested students must apply to and be accepted by this Department. Students in the lab have the option of obtaining a specialist degree in developmental biology by joining the newly formed Collaborative Program in Developmental Biology. This Program is multi-departmental in terms of student and faculty composition and courses offered.
