Career Aspirations:

I first started my studies in cancer research during the 4th year of my Bachelor’s Degree in Biochemistry (2016-2017) while doing my Honor’s Research Project under the supervision of Dr. Sandra Turcotte at the University of Moncton and the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute (ACRI).  In 2017, I began my Master’s degree and then transferred to the PhD Program in 2018, still under the supervision of Dr. Turcotte.  My field of study is focused on the identification of microRNAs potentially involved in the carcinogenesis of the Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma (ccRCC).  Eventually, I’d love to start my own cancer research laboratory.
