Cell and Systems Biology Graduate Union
Hey! I’m Amir and I serve as Co-President for the CSBGU. I am a 3rd year Ph.D. Student in the McCourt lab, studying the molecular and structural evolution of parasitic receptors… cool eh?
Hi everyone, my name is Amad and I am excited to serve as one of your Co-Presidents this year! I am a second year Master’s student studying the dynamics of collective cell migration during Drosophila oogenesis. Aside from my school life, I enjoy video games, playing sports and trying new foods. I’m also a huge sneaker head, so feel free to ask me about my collection of kicks!
Hi, I’m Vishal and I serve as Communications Director this year! I am a second year Master’s student in the Lange/Orchard lab studying the neuroendocrinology of Rhodnius prolixus! When I’m not in the lab I love to watch and play sports and listen to tons of rap music! You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m Mouska. I’ll be your Treasurer this year. My research area is investigating role of hydrogen sulphide as a molecular oxygen sensor in the anoxic turtle brain. You can contact me at email@example.com
I’m Claresta and I’m your secretary for this year. I’m a first year Master student studying the signalling networks underlying Striga germination. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi, I’m Jin and I am your Fundraising Officer this year. I am a first year Master’s student in the Developmental Biology program in the Godt lab. You can contact me at email@example.com
I’m Renan and I am your Sports Coordinator. My field of study is Genome biology and Bioinformatics. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m Kateryna and I am the CSBGU CUPE reprasentative. I am a second-year Master’s student in the Guttman Lab studying how the wheat head microbiome affects wheat’s susceptibility to Fusarium Head Blight. You can contact me at email@example.com
I’m Mouly, the UTSC Rep. I study neuro-molecular and behavioural outcomes of early-life stress. With the help of the CSBGU team, I would like to organize events that are more attractive to UTSC grad students and that are held at the UTSC campus. In effect, the CSBGU would strengthen connections between grad students in both geographical locations.
