BSc Concordia University 2010 in Honours Cell and Molecular Biology

Current position: PhD candidate in Biochemistry

Ariel joined the lab in September 2010 after completing his undergraduate degree at Concordia University. He is interested in the regulation of processing of microRNA clusters on humans and mice.  His current goals are deciphering the maturation process of the miR-17~92 cluster, and inquiring whether this process is altered in lymphomas and leukemias. When not in the lab, he enjoys outdoors activities such as running, hiking, swimming, canoeing, and skiing.
