Dr. Deena Gendoo earned her PhD in Biology, with graduate specialization in Bioinformatics, at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. As part of her PhD, she was also a trainee of the McGill Centre for Bioinformatics, and of the CIHR Systems Biology Training Program. Her research focused on the bioinformatic sequence and structural analysis of amyloidogenicity in prions and other proteins. Prior to her PhD, Deena was a Marie Curie Early Student Training Research Fellows at the University of Leeds, where she pursued a Master of Research (MRes) in Advanced Genetic Analysis. Her fellowship allowed her to focus on bioinformatics projects involving transcriptomic analysis and drug design. Combining her previous experiences, Dr. Gendoo is currently pursuing her postdoctorate fellowship, focusing on drug repurposing in cancer. She is one of a small but select number of awardees across Canada for the Brain Canada-CIBC Brain Cancer Research Training Awards to support her postdoctorate fellowship.
