doctorate. His doctoral thesis entitled ” Functional Characterization of Pax-5 circular RNA in B Lymphocytes Malignancies “.
“I am learning a lot about different possibilities of careers open to us throughout the CRTP. Through various CRTP events, I also get to meet new people that will take different paths in their careers. This has enabled me to develop a network of contacts and possibly a potential door for my future endeavours,” says Danick.
To date, the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute has awarded over $ 300,000 in stipend support to eight Université de Moncton graduates and postdoctoral fellows. Through the Cancer Research Training Program, trainees have access to a program designed to expose them to all aspects of cancer research.
