Hailey recently graduated from Western University with an Honours Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) specializing in Biochemistry and Cancer Biology, with a Minor in Genetics. During her undergraduate studies she had the opportunity to conduct research at the London Regional Cancer Centre in the Shepherd Lab, focusing on epithelial ovarian cancer. This experience led to her award-winning thesis: “Inflammation Mediators in Ovarian Cancer Spheroids” and ignited her passion for research into the molecular basis of cancer. She is currently pursuing a Master’s of Biochemistry at McGill University and conducting breast cancer research at the Goodman Cancer Research Centre.
