The Aucoin Research Group is focused on complex biologics. Biologics are biological products i.e. products that are derived from living organisms or are the organisms themselves. More specifically, our group focusses on cell culture, growing populations of individual cells that are either themselves the products or that make a specific type of protein, nucleic acid, lipid or combination thereof.

Since the onset of the 2020 COVID19 pandemic, our lab has directed all of our efforts towards research that could help in these trying times.
To do this,
These are some of the research projects that have been on-going in the Aucoin Group prepandemic:
Development of a cellular model that can be used to improve process conditions for the production of complex biologics with a focus on influenza virus-like particles and adeno-associated virus vectors
