ANATOMY LABORATORY FACILITIES


Cutting-edge laboratory facilities for the study of human anatomy.


Please note that our laboratory facilities are available for use to those outside of the Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology as well as to those outside of McGill University. Due to the nature of the Laboratory and the consequently restricted access, reservations require a special application process for those not from McGill.  The application form for use of the laboratories should be sent to Dr. Geoffroy Noël (geoffroy.noel [at] mcgill.ca).

All who make use of the Department's laboratory facilities adhere to a strict Code of Conduct.  For a copy of our Code, please see here.

 

Notre laboratoire est aussi à la disposition de ceux qui sont à l'extérieur du Département ou même de l'Université.  Puisque le laboratoire nécessite un accès limité, il faut d'abord remplir un formulaire de demande pour son utilisation.  Veuillez envoyer le formulaire à Dr. Geoffroy Noël (geoffroy.noel [at] mcgill.ca). 

L'adhésion à notre Code de conduite est obligatoire pour tous ceux qui utilisent le laboratoire d'anatomie.  Pour une copie du code, cliquez ici.
