When the MacDonald lab is not busy performing experiments and isolating islets, its members enjoy socializing and team-building activities. Some of their annual events include summer barbecues, birthday celebrations, Secret Santa exchanges, and holiday parties!
The MacDonald Lab space encompasses the following facilities:
Human Islet Isolation Lab
Human Islet Deep Phenotyping Lab
Human Islet Cryopreservation and Biobanking Facility
We are always keen to hear from enthusiastic scientists and islet biologists! You can get in touch with us here.
We respectfully acknowledge that we are located on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional gathering place for diverse Indigenous peoples including the Cree, Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Ojibway/ Saulteaux/Anishinaabe, Inuit, and many others whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to influence our vibrant community.
