Volunteer: Michael Zon
Michael Zon received his BSc from the University of Guelph where he studied Nanoscience, and is currently pursuing a medical degree and PhD in Biomedical Engineering at McMaster University. He has previously conducted research simulating twitching motility in bacteria using molecular dynamics, and locating rodent skull sutures via ultrasound imaging. Within the Computational Genomics Laboratory at Princess Margaret Michael develops software to test the prognostic value of gene signatures and assess drug repurposing methods. Michael's primary interests are in the application of the physical sciences to medicine. As such, he aspires to become a physician scientist in order to apply his research interests to the medical field and integrate his results into patient care.
