etics and dietary behaviour. Her research aims to determine whether providing personalized dietary information based on genetics motivates positive behavioural changes to a greater extent than the current 'one-size fits all' approach to dietary guidelines.

  • Charles Yin, from London, studying at McMaster University, will work with Dr. Marie Elliot at McMaster. Mr. Yin will be undertaking research to uncover novel antibodies that are effective against antibiotic resistant bacteria. With the rise in the number of antibiotic resistant bacteria, resulting in once manageable infections becoming potentially lethal, Mr. Yin will be joining the Elliot lab, which has already identified two genes present in soil bacterium that control the production of a number of normally unexpressed products, many of which are likely to have some antibiotic activity.

    "Over the past nine years, we have helped 56 undergraduate students from nine different Ontario universities gain firsthand exposure to genomics research," commented Dr. Mark Poznansky, President and CEO of OGI. "Our Summer Research Fellowship program forms part of our efforts to build the future of genomics in Ontario and ensure our younger generation are fully aware of the power of genomics in helping to solve some of the biggest challenges we face today in healthcare, climate change, sustainable crop production and in finding alternative energy sources."
