TORONTO, ON. — CANSSI Ontario and Ontario Genomics have awarded three fellowships to support early-career scientists undertaking full-time research at a CANSSI Ontario member university or at any of their affiliated research institutes to pursue work that deepens our understanding of genomic epidemiology and statistical genetics, CANSSI Ontario and Ontario Genomics announced today.
The Ontario Genomics-CANSSI Ontario Postdoctoral Fellowship in Genomic Data Science, originally conceived as a single fellowship in 2021, has since evolved into three awards.
We are delighted to congratulate the inaugural recipients of this Fellowship:
- Dr. Roux-Cil Ferreira, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Western University
Supervisors: Drs. Art Poon and Jessica Prodger
