Undergraduate Science Student, University of Windsor

Supervisor: Dr. John Trant

Project:Self-Immolative NanoCapsule – A New Form of Drug Delivery for Glioblastoma Multiforme”

Generously funded by Jack Nichol Family Fund (London Community Foundation)

I am extremely honoured to receive a Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada Studentship. I have always been intrigued by the development of new medicines as well as drug delivery methods. Receiving this studentship will allow me to apply my knowledge and passion for organic chemistry in combination with my interest in medicine, to develop a targeted drug delivery method for glioblastoma multiforme in the Trant Lab.

It will also help me explore my future career options by allowing me to do research full-time for two summers. Lastly, it will provide me with the financial support that I need as an international student studying in Canada.

To think that someday the research I have conducted might be of help for brain tumour patients is truly motivating, and therefore I would like to express my sincerest appreciation to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada and the Jack Nichol Family Fund (London Community Foundation). Thank you for your generosity and contribution towards brain tumour research, and for making all these possible.
