TRP students present at exclusive UofTMed Student Showcase

Congratulations to TRP students who were selected among the Faculty of Medicine student research projects to present at an exclusive showcase hosted by Dean Trevor Young on May 12, 2017. It was an interactive event to celebrate the generosity of donors and their impact on students and trainees.

The TRP students who presented projects:

  • Translational Research Program graduate students Lily Jungeum, Gurpreet Kamboj, Tiffanie Kei and Cheryl Tsui tackle long wait lines for mental health services at Canadian Universities and helped revamp the U of T Health Services website through six co-creation sessions with students.


  • Translational Research Program graduate students Drs. Fahad Alam and Clyde Matava developed a virtual reality program that allows patients to “experience” the journey of being prepped for surgery and transferred to the operating room, as a kind of exposure therapy.
