Volunteer Student Volunteer Western University Toronto

I am a second year Medical Sciences student attending Western University. Last summer, I had the opportunity to be a part of the CanSarCC team in the building stages of the Toronto CanSaRCC database. There, I was trained to work on creating a extensive data network which was to be used across Canada with the goal of ultimately improving the understanding of treatments and impact for patients with sarcoma. Working with CanSarCC as a research student has allowed me to observe and learn from professionals in the field. I was also able to take the concepts I learned in school related to subjects such as genetics and physiology and apply it daily to what I was tasked with. CanSarCC has given me the opportunity to be apart of their greater mission of developing a high-quality network, upon which research across the country will be conducted. I look forward to continue working with CanSarCC in the future.
