I am currently in my 3rd year as a PhD student in the Li Lab, and I am ecstatic to be a part of our efforts to develop colorimetric assays for a wide range of biologically relevant targets. I am currently working on the development of diagnostic assays that will enable detection of important cancer biomarkers.

Last Sunday March 29th, five members of the Li Lab ran Hamilton’s Around the Bay Road Race, the oldest race in North America. Kha, Shahrzad and Zohaib ran in the 5 km race, while Dingran and Rachel joined Fazmin from the CMCB in running the 30 km race. The event was exciting and these members of the lab were thrilled to finish and receive medals celebrating their accomplishments. They’re looking forward to surpassing their times in next year’s race!
