Amazing to attend TEDWomen in Palm Springs and meet new and old friends, especially those in the TED Fellow community. Inspiring talks, great chats with fellow attendees and a little bit of winter sunshine.
Delighted to co-write this article for online magazine Lady Science, discussing the life, work and legacy of the formidable Dr Jane C. Wright, a black woman physician scientist who was one of the early pioneers of chemotherapy. A different writing style to that which I’m used to and certainly a challenge, but a very enjoyable and educational process! I hope you enjoy it.
I chaired a meeting of the international Replication Repair Deficiency workshop as well as presenting my research at the meeting from her work in Professor Uri Tabori’s lab at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids).
In addition, I presented a poster of my research into the neurotoxic side effects of childhood leukemia chemotherapy agent, methotrexate.
One of my favourite articles that I’ve written for Forbes. Very innovative, new science and a pleasure to write about.
It was wonderful to be able to share my story at Burdock Brewery in Toronto for Storycollider! Thanks to everyone who came along.

Honored to be invited to the Royal Canadian Institute for Science 'Science Roundhouse' event as a table host. I discussed cancer survivorship and how global healthcare systems have to change in order to better care for growing numbers of survivors.
I'm pleased to say that I'm now writing more articles per month for Forbes, so I won't be posting every single one here. However, I'd like to highlight a few that I particularly enjoyed writing recently:
Vicky was one of the speakers at ScienceSlam Toronto on Tuesday 20th February. Her talk was about stem cells, organoids and science journalism.
