My thesis work involves:
- better understanding the role of the stem-like cells that reside in the spinal cord and their contribution to repair after spinal cord injury, and
- investigating whether cell transplantation is a viable and effective treatment for spinal cord repair.
What was the best surprise about UBC or life in Vancouver?
I love living in Vancouver, and I am so glad I took the chance and moved out west.
Why did you decide to study at UBC?
Studying at UBC offered a great opportunity to study neuroscience from some of the top researchers in the field and a great training environment at the International Collaboration of Repair Discoveries (ICORD).
