Julien Sénécal places fifth nationally in the Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada
Julien Sénécal, a first-year student at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf who has been mentored in the Lady Davis Institute at the JGH, placed fifth nationally in the Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada. Mr. Sénécal developed a project that explored the potential of the bacterial defence system known as CRISPR/Cas9 to serve as a novel technology for inhibiting the capacity of the HIV virus to replicate. His work was supervised by Yann Le Duff, a post-doctoral fellow in the HIV/AIDS lab of Dr. Chen Liang.
