Hi! My name is Asa and I am one of the Directors of Communications this year. I am currently a second year MSc student with the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology working in the lab of Dr. Kelsie Thu. My research is focused on delineating the mechanisms of innate immune check point inhibitors in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer.
My name is Vida Maksimoska, and I am the Director for Communications at SRSA. I completed a Master in Translational Scientific Research from UofT. I am currently a PhD candidate at the Institute of Medical Science, University of Toronto (UofT) under supervision of Dr. Katalin Szaszi in the Keenan Research Centre. My work is focused on evaluating the effect of a novel drug on human keratinocytes and aiming to identify the drug’s mechanism of action. Simultaneously I am looking at the importance of growth factors in wound healing and their role in regulating small proteins that are vital in collective cell migration.
