Fernando Sanchez Quete
Fernando is a research assistant working in the Loeb and Frigon research groups. He has a master of science in virology & immunology From Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS). He is known for his passion in understanding life dynamics through the biology of viruses. In the last five years, he has been studying both RNA and DNA viruses by using several approaches and techniques in cell and molecular biology. His current work in the Loeb group focuses on understanding light based disinfection mechanisms, predicting the virus persistence, and detection of important viral pathogens in the environment.
Gabriel is a third-year undergraduate student studying in Civil Engineering at McGill University. He works in the lab as a SURE Summer research students and as part of a CIVE470 undergraduate research project. His research interests are related to the built and aquatic environment, with a specific interest in photoinactivation and detection of viral pathogens. He is currently working on a systematic review and meta-analysis of sunlight inactivation of viral pathogens. He also worked on the detection of SARS-CoV-2 variants in the wastewater of Quebec. Outside of research, you will most likely see Gabriel being active either playing soccer or going kayaking in the Lac-St-Louis.
Greyson is an undergraduate student in the Department of Civil Engineering at McGill University with a minor in Management. He works in the lab as a SURE Summer research students and as part of a CIVE470 undergraduate research project. He is interested in research on aquatic environments, with a keen interest in nanomaterials-aided and light-mediated pathogenic inactivation. He is currently working on developing techniques for the synthesis of novel solar activated plasmonic materials for environmental remediation. He worked on SARS-CoV-2 variants detection in Quebec wastewater. Native to Shanghai, he is a world traveler who can often be found hiking in nature and jogging in the City of Montreal.
