The CSMB asked trainees to tell Canadians’ what basic research means to you – and they did.
The CSMB is pleased to announce that Kaitlin Kharas is the winner of the 2016 Video Challenge for trainees.
“Basic research is important because increasing humanity’s understanding of how the world works equips us with the knowledge and tools necessary to develop innovative technologies and therapies.” – Kaitlin Kharas
Kaitlin Kharas is pursuing a M.Sc. in Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Ottawa. Her research in Dr. Marjorie Brand’s lab at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute focuses on hematopoietic stem cell differentiation and how deregulation of this process causes leukemia.
