Congrats to MacKenzie Wilke and Sarah Lyle for representing Canada at the Pharmacogenomics Global Research Network Meeting and both receiving top abstract awards! Also to MacKenzie for receiving a silver award in the Child Health Research Days Conference (MSc category).
It was great to have the Wright Lab join us!
In the last few months the Drögemöller Lab has received funding from CIHR (Operating Grant: Early Career Investigators in Maternal, Reproductive, Child & Youth Health); Research Manitoba (New Investigator Operating Grant) and the Health Sciences Centre Foundation (General Operating Grant). We appreciate your support!
In addition to Sarah completing her Honours project focusing on the genetics of polycystic ovary syndrome, we are also thrilled that Sarah will be staying on in the lab as a Co-op student!
Thanks to some very clever people in the lab, we successfully completed this escape room game (despite “helpful” contributions from the PI)
We are really proud of all of MacKenzie’s hard work!
Danielle will be joining us remotely from the UK to perform a systematic review of the use of polygenic risk scores in the field of pharmacogenomics.
