2020 MSc Molecular & Cellular Biology

Why I chose Guelph

I chose to do my graduate studies at U of G because I did a research project and Co OP at the University, and I really like the project and I wanted to continue

About my advisor

My advisor is really supportive and he cares about his grad students. ​

Words of advice

It is best to learn different skills and be great at it.

How will my work Improve Life?

My research is about developing a model for cardiomapathy which are caused by mutations in sarcomeric proteins. If I can develop it, my research will help the field to know how these mutations that lead to cardiomyopathy bring about the disease state.

My future plans

Not sure, still deciding, but something to do with fertility and reproduction.
