Daniel holds a BSc in Biochemistry from the University of Ottawa. During his undergraduate studies, he worked with Dr. Alexandre Blais’s laboratory where he studied the role of the Six1 transcription factor in adult satellite cell proliferation. Subsequently, he completed his MSc in Neuroscience at the University of Ottawa in Dr. Ruth Slack’s laboratory. His thesis examined the role of the activator E2f transcription factors, crucial regulators of cell cycle progression, in adult neural stem cell quiescence and activation.
Daniel looks forward to applying his accumulated technical knowledge to support ongoing research projects in Dr. Lochmüller’s lab.
