TRANSLATING SCIENCE INTO LIVES

Matoori Lab at Université de Montréal

 

MATOORI LAB

Bioengineered Diagnostics and Therapeutics

Our goal is to make a difference for patients.

We develop transformational formulations for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes with a patient-centric focus.

As we are guided by clinical need, we proactively engage with clinicians and pharmacists.

The Matoori Lab was established in 2021 and is located at the Faculté de Pharmacie of Université de Montréal (Québec, Canada).

We are committed to foster an inclusive environment in the Matoori Lab, and to promote diversity in STEM in terms of age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, nationality, and religion.

STEPPING INTO THE CLINIC

We engange with physicians and pharmacists to learn about clinical needs, to identify biorelevant systems to test our formulations, and to conduct clinical research.
