véronique cholette, MSC candidate

I have a bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences from Ottawa University where I gained research experience studying weight loss. My project involved investigating a specific polymorphism of a gene implicated in fatty acid oxidation.

During my undergrad, I worked as a lab technician in a pharmacy as well as working on a clinical and administrative level in a hospital. Working closely with patients and their families, I developed an interest in chronic inflammatory diseases and their multifactorial etiology. I am delighted to be a part of the Inflammation Genomics Lab team!
> Véronique has graduated from the MSc program in Human Genetics! Congrats!
