We congratulate Faride, Rafiqul, and Jonas for successfully completing their annual progress review and welcome our undergraduate researchers for this summer.
Dr Kuss received one of the first New Frontiers in Research Funds, awarded by the Canada Research Coordinating Committee. This funding will give us a running start in our endeavor to combat antibiotic resistance. Find more information here and see the related available postdoc position under "openings".
Congrats to Faride for presenting her first poster after only 4 months of work in our group. Faride presented her poster entitled "Fabrication and Electrochemical Characterization of Micro-Optical-Ring Electrodes (MOREs)" at the Manitoba Materials Conference 2019 and will next bring her poster to the Canadian Chemistry Conference in Quebec City in June.
Both Tran Le Huy Luu and Christina Yiebiyo have been awarded Undergraduate Research Awards for summer 2019. Huy will investigate drug resistance in cancer cells, whereas Christina will be working on distinguishing between drug efflux pump activity and efflux pump expression in cancer by electrochemistry.
We welcome Simranpreet Dhaliwal to the group, who was awarded an Undergraduate Research Award to conduct research on bacterial drug resistance with us this summer.
