Meet the Lab

Trainees in the Charron lab gain hands-on experience with peptide chemistry, organic chemistry, and radiochemistry. Trainees can expect to learn valuable organic techniques such as organic synthesis, column chromatography, TLC, NMR, and MS as well as peptide techniques including solid phase peptide synthesis, post-synthetic modifications, HPLC, and MS.


Interested in joining the Charron lab?

We encourage prospective researchers to apply for internal and external fellowships. In addition to national funding opportunities (NSERC, Banting), Dalhousie offers numerous funding opportunities.  Please follow the link for important information about application procedures and deadlines. 

We currently have no research positions available.
