    Congratulations to Fiona Haxho, recipient of a 2016 Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship!

    Fiona Haxho (DBMS) intends to study the cell-signalling mechanisms involved in pancreatic cancer. In particular, her research is focused on a mammalian enzyme called neuraminidase-1 and its role in tumour growth, development and resistance to chemotherapy, amongst other things. Her doctoral research aims to target this enzyme and determine its functional role in models of pancreatic cancer.
