Sarah is a MSc candidate in the Experimental Medicine program in the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences. She completed her BSc in Life Sciences at Queen’s University.
During her undergraduate training, Sarah’s fourth year independent project focused on investigating the interaction between human milk microbes and host genetics. She is looking forward to further drawing the connections between the human milk microbes and the health benefits for the breastfed children through employing various statistical testings.
Sarah’s current project aims to identify the novel milk microbial markers, a modifiable exposure in a child’s early life, that could potentially modulate the risk of childhood asthma development.
