Lakni Abeyesekera

Work-Study Undergraduate Student

I’m a third year genetics + medical sciences student, with a particular interest in oncology. This year I’m super excited to be working in Dr. Dumeaux’s lab as well as St.Joseph’s Hospital in a collaborative study involving host markers for breast cancer! When I’m not in school, I’d most likely be going on adventures with my two dogs, renovating my apartment, or watching an episode of modern family!! In the future I plan to pursue a career as a physician-scientist 👩🏽 ️.
