Project title: Identification of cytotoxic T cell (CTL) epitopes involved in the development of alopecia areata


I joined UBC after completion of my Bachelor of Science degree in molecular biology and biochemistry from Simon Fraser University. I joined Experimental Medicine program under the supervision of Dr.Kevin McElwee and Dr.Jerry Shapiro to study the pathogenesis of alopecia areata, answering the questions on what caused it, and how it may affect our health other than hair loss. For my PhD thesis, I will identify the autoantigen epitopes that trigger CTL response; leading to destruction, identify the clones of the cells that get activated and understand how these activated cells can affect the health of the heart.
I joined CIHR-SRTC in 2010, after I have transferred into the PhD program. I enjoyed the varieties of trainings offered by the program such as the clinical observership. Previously, I have also actively participated in the organization of CIHR-SRTC research day as well as the trainee workshops.
