What an awesome day. Our first MSc student (Erin MacFarlane) and SIX BSc students from the Bruin Lab graduated from Carleton today! We missed one student in the picture but managed to get everyone else in the same place at the same time.
Research Day 2019 was another success. The Bruin Lab had three outstanding Honour's Thesis students this year: Laura Harkness (L), Rayanna Merhi (M), and Kelsea McKay (R). As has become a tradition, we celebrated all the Honour's students after with the McKay Lab.
Today was a big day for the Bruin Lab. Myriam Hoyeck successfully completed her qualifying exam and is now our FIRST PhD student! We are so happy that she'll be staying on to continue studying the long-term consequences of development TCDD exposure in mice.
Dr. Bruin joined Diabetes Canada and other Canadian diabetes researchers (Drs. Erin Mulvihill, Lorraine Lipscombe, Sonia Batalia and Fraser Scott) on Parliament Hill to celebrate Diabetes Awareness Month and the national "Diabetes360" initiative.
