Name: Curtis Weng
Current Education: Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours) at McMaster University
Position: Student Research Assistant
After first year of undergrad, Curtis developed an interest in cellular biology and immunology, thus leading him to apply at the Rossi Lab. Under the supervision of Dr. Elena Groppa, Curtis is helping to establish possible cellular mechanisms that induce or partake in the remodeling of damaged muscle fibers. Mesenchymal cells, such as fibro/adipogenic progenitors (FAPs), are being studied in particular to identify their role in this regenerative process.
In his free time, Curtis can be found enjoying outdoor activities, hanging out with family and friends, or competing in badminton.
