Prestigious National Award for CSB PhD Graduate Navroop Dhaliwal

Congratulations to recent CSB graduate Navroop Dhaliwal, for receiving the Graduate Student Research Prize from the Canadian Council of University Biology Chairs.

Dr Dhaliwal’s research in Professor Mitchell’s laboratory provided a significant new insight into the very first steps taken by stem cells when they exit the pluripotent state in order to become more specialized cells.

Dr Dhaliwal and Prof Mitchell discussed the professional outcomes of this award-winning research. Dr Dhaliwal reveals that her publication “really impressed employers and led to me being approached and interviewed for postdoctoral studies.” Professor Mitchell describes Dr Dhaliwal as “an incredibly talented and insightful cellular and molecular biologist who established critical new techniques while also training others on those techniques.”  

Congratulations, Navroop!
