Amanda spent two summers in the Bedard lab, the latter of which was spent working on a hereditary kidney cancer called Wilms’ Tumour. This project turned into her honours work, which was largely focused on epigenetic changes in the rare paediatric disease. In June of 2014, she presented her research at the ESHG conference in Milan, Italy.

Where are they now?

Amanda has moved to the other side of the bench, for the time being, and is working as an administrator for Daxsonics Ultrasound.
