Sujani Ganesh

Sujani Ganesh graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Science degree from the Molecular Genetics and Microbiology specialist program at the University of Toronto in 2008. She then continued on to graduate studies in a multidrug resistance laboratory, under the direction of Dr. Ayush Kumar, at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). Her thesis focused on the development of a single copy gene expression system as a tool for purifying membrane proteins from Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Upon successfully earning her Master of Science degree in 2011, she pursued her interests in education as a teaching assistant at UOIT and an instructor at Centennial College. In 2014 she was given the opportunity to design the laboratory component of a pilot course in the Medical Laboratory Science program at UOIT, entitled Molecular and Emerging Technologies, aiming to teach principles of molecular based diagnostic methods to 3rd year students; before beginning their hands on training in a hospital setting. The following year, she took on a number contracts to explore various scientific industries including reference diagnostics, at IDEXX Laboratories, and medical writing as a freelance medical writer. She is excited to continue and grow her academic career with the Toronto organ preservation laboratory as a research technician.
