A Tribute To Those Who Have Come And Gone
I am a fourth year Biomedical Sciences student at the University of Calgary. I have been involved with research at the NDOPL laboratory for over two years. Working in this laboratory has made me fall in love with the developing brain. I am aspiring to go to medical school and continue working in the field of pediatric neurology. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, spending quality time with family and friends, and exploring new places around the city.
Katrina Yu obtained a M.Sc from the University of Lethbridge in 2008. She has been working as a Research Assistant since then at University of Lethbridge, University of British Columbia, and currently, University of Calgary. She has expertise in animal behaviour and molecular analysis. Her hobbies include interior design, baking, hiking, and week-long road trips to new destinations every year. Her favorite overseas travel destination is Taiwan where all her beloved families are.
I completed an Honours thesis in Biomedical Sciences with the NeuroDevelopmental Origins of Plasticity Lab with co-supervision by Dr. Simon Spanswick in 2017, examining the effects of caffeine exposure on the outcomes of mild Traumatic Brain Injury. I am beginning medical school in the fall of 2017, and am excited to continue working with the lab and in the field of neuroscience. In my spare time I enjoy snowboarding, going to the mountains with my dog, and playing classical violin.
