Research topic and relevance
Alain Verreault and his team study the mechanisms that enable cells to repair DNA that is tightly packaged into chromosomes. Defects in these mechanisms can result in cancer, but they can also be exploited to develop novel chemotherapeutic agents that will more specifically target cancer cells, rather than normal cells.
