About Us

Our lab calls "home" to the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Calgary. 

Our lipid research program started in 2006 and is continuously supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

Our group is diverse and dynamic and committed to excellence in Science.

Our Mission

Science, like other forms of art, combines curiosity, creativity, passion, and a unique set of skills aimed at providing critical views and solutions to the challenges of our world.

At the Zaremberg lab we are proud to be part of every step of the scientific process and is our mission to contribute to scientific knowledge with responsibility, work ethics, integrity and great commitment to our society and the wellbeing of humankind.   

Our Group


Members of our group come from very diverse backgrounds and speak many different languages, but Science brings us together with purpose and enjoyment. 

From a "sketch" of a scientist to "colourful" polished professionals, we enjoy the journey together with great team spirit and respect for one another.
