Two Sentinel North teams among the 10 discoveries of the year in Québec Science

Published on 8 Jan 2021

Of the 10 discoveries of the year 2020 according to Québec Science magazine, two are from Université Laval teams participating in the Sentinel North strategy.

A team led by André Marette has revealed a distinct bacterial signature in people with type-2 diabetes, an important breakthrough that will allow further research on this disease.

Achim Randelhoff's work shows that phytoplankton continues to grow even during winter in the Arctic, despite the almost total absence of light. This discovery opens up new avenues for the study of the marine food chain.

Congratulations to the first authors of these studies Fernando Anhê (direction: André Marette, CRIUCPQ) and Achim Randelhoff (direction: Marcel Babin, Takuvik) and to the teams and collaborators for this nomination!
