Colton, Competitions and CSM

One more new face can be found in the Stearns Lab: Colton Mak, who will be completing his project course with us, investigating the phylogenetic placements of P. sordelli isolates and carbohydrate-use genes that enable them to co-exist with fiber fermenters in the gut.

Recent Lab Success – Colin received the 1st place in the oral presentations for the biochemistry and biomedical sciences research symposium at the masters (MSc) level, and Moiz was recently awarded both the Bachelor of Health Science (BHSc) Summer Research Scholarship and the Mitacs Research Grant to continue his work over the summer!! Additionally, Colin has successfully transferred from the MSc program to the PhD program – congratulations!

Lastly, Bhavya, Colin, Dr. Stearns and Chiara presented posters at the annual CSM (Canadian Society of Microbiologists) conference.
