Career Aspirations:

Using the experience gained from his co-op in the area of anti-cancer vaccinations and from his combined honours in biochemistry and chemistry using 19F NMR spectroscopy to study the activity of GCPRs, Calem is pursuing his M.Sc. in the department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology to further study unique fungal hydrohphobin proteins. Upon completion of his degree Calem is hoping to continue his research in industry, or in academia as he pursues his Ph.D. focusing on the biophysical characterization of proteins.
