Career Aspirations:

I first started my studies in cancer research when I signed up for my honours thesis (2016-2017) under the supervision of Dr. Gilles Robichaud, at the Université de Moncton and the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute (ACRI). My honours thesis took place during the 4th year of my Bachelor of Science degree. The project of the thesis focused on the role of Pax-5 in NFAT-dependant regulation of breast cancer malignancy. This project led me to acquire knowledge in different disciplines in addition to gaining experience with various laboratory techniques in molecular and cellular biology. Looking ahead, I aspire to conduct cancer research after obtaining my Master’s degree but I have not dismissed the idea of pursuing studies in a PhD program. Regardless, I will put all my training, skill and experience to good use, advancing knowledge in health research.
