@brobourne is a second year PA student at the University of Toronto (Class of 2018).
.
"I entered the PA program completely set on emergency medicine. Prior to the program, my background was in first response/search and rescue, so it seemed like the perfect fit. However, as soon as I walked into the OR for my general surgery clerkship, I knew it was the setting for me. As a PA student in the Sudbury HSN OR, I was given the opportunity to first assist, which helped me to develop new skills and a passion for surgery. The process of skill acquisition can be hard and frustrating at first, but it is exceedingly satisfying in the end!"

#MeetTheResearcher
.
This is Noeline Subramaniam, @moe_science, a PhD student at @uoft . She’s just joined @uoft after completing her Master’s degree at @uofguelph , where she studied regenerative biology, using an unusual animal model - the leopard gecko! 🦎🦎
.
“There’s a variety of organisms that can regenerate, like zebrafish or axolotls, but we use the leopard gecko because it’s a more closely related regeneration-competent amniote to mammals”, explains Noeline. You might know a gecko can drop it’s tail and regrow a new one, but did you know their skin can heal without leaving a scar? 👌🏻
.
“We have lots of proteins in our body called growth factors that orchestrate all of our cellular activities, including cell growth, survival and repair,” says Noeline, “I investigated several major growth factor families and their expression patterns during normal conditions and during scar-free wound healing.”
.
“Since many of these growth factors are conserved across species, by investigating them in a organism that can heal without scarring, eventually we may be able to manipulate wound healing in a mammalian model and develop therapeutic agents to help burn victims or diabetic patients” 🔬💊
.
Noeline says that while regeneration may seem like fiction, possible only by Wolverine in X-Men, it isn’t all that unusual a phenomenon. “There is a gradient of regenerative capabilities across species, but also within ourselves. Up until the start of the third trimester, we have the ability to heal scar-free in utero. Kids can regenerate finger tips (if the nail bed remains) and our livers have regenerative abilities throughout our lives!” 👋🏽👶🏼
.
For her PhD, Noeline is studying epigenetics and cellular biology. “Our lab is interested in endothelial cells, the cells lining your blood vessels, and epigenetics. The percentage of our genome that make proteins is actually very small (~1.5%-2%). So a huge area of study for scientists is to understand what the rest of the genome, the non-coding portion, does.”
.
Noeline hopes that understanding different non-coding elements expressed in endothelial cells might lead to the development of new therapeutic treatments. 💊🔬💉

Exactly five years ago that I defended my PhD thesis at the University of Toronto and earned the title Dr. Gagné. What a memorable moment in my life!

Although I quit my promising research as a scientist this past summer, I know that being an entrepreneur and following my passion as a nutrition and lifestyle coach to help people regaining their optimal health was the right decision, and I have no regrets ☺️
