Welcome

 

The laboratory of Prof Christine Theoret is part of the Département de biomédecinevétérinaire of the Faculté de médecine vétérinaire of the Université de Montréal, located in St-Hyacinthe, Québec, Canada.

 

The Comparative Veterinary Tissue Healing Laboratory, headed by Prof Theoret, is a fully equipped lab space that provides the means to characterize and quantify repair in various tissues and animal species. Innovative techniques involving cellular and molecular biology, biomechanical testing and tissue engineering focus on distinct aspects of the process to improve understanding of the pathogenesis of scarring. The Faculté de médecine vétérinaire possesses housing facilities for a number of animal species including laboratory animals, dogs and horses.

The long term goal of Prof Theoret’s research program is to elucidate the basic mechanisms underlying over-scarring of the skin in horses in an effort to contribute to the development of novel therapeutic approaches for controlling scarring in various organs, in both veterinary species and man.
