Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
Faculty of Medicine
Rosemary (Rosie) Papp is currently a graduate student in the Department of Pathology. She recently completed her Bachelor of Science with a major in Life Science’s and a minor in Psychology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. As an individual very passionate about health and wellness, she is excited to have the opportunity to be involved in research for the Devlin lab at BC Children’s Hospital, where she will be investigating the relationship between nutrition and cardiovascular disease. Her thesis project is investigating the relationship between a B-vitamin, riboflavin, on vascular function.
During her time at Queen’s, she developed a background in physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, and epidemiology through a variety of courses. Additionally, she had the privilege of working for Dr. Hardy at Western University as a summer undergraduate student, where she was exposed to the world of biomedical research. This prior experience and passion for health sciences gave her motivation to apply to the Department of Pathology. She is very grateful for the opportunity ahead of her, and especially Dr. Devlin for all of her guidance and compassion. She is also very excited to snowboard this winter!
