It is always a joy to see our alumni return to guide current students. One of our alumna, Manal Siddiqui (BSc, Vic 0T6) has received a 2020 Arbor Award for being a dedicated mentor to students in CSB and in the Human Biology (HMB) Program.

Siddiqui was an HMB student and conducted research in Professor Ashley Bruce’s lab. Since graduating, she has mentored a number of CSB undergrad and grad students. They greatly appreciate her willingness to always be available to answer their questions and to provide guidance. One example of Siddiqui’s dedication is that almost a decade after graduating, she sat for an interview when she was Manager at Clinical Trials Ontario to help undergraduates understand her career progression. She is currently Director, Health Strategic Partnerships at the Vector Institute.

Thank you for your mentorship!
