A message for you from one of our Postdoctoral Fellow student.

“I have been extremely fortunate to work with world-leaders in the field of public health genomics and personalized medicine. The multidisciplinary environment has immersed me in a collaborative setting with researchers at the top of their respective professions, be it genomic epidemiology, health service evaluation, or public attitudes research. The integrated training opportunities across the University and Ottawa Hospital sites has given me numerous opportunities to become involved in diverse research and present at prestigious international conferences. Additionally, Ottawa is a great city in which to raise a young family and offers both ample greenspace and an active social program, with festivals throughout the year including the world famous Winterlude.”

All the best -Stuart Nicholls - Postdoctoral Fellow
