Jocelyn Bégin

Jocelyn earned her MSc. in Cell and Developmental Biology from the University of British Columbia in 2022. During her MSc research, she studied the metabolic regulation of chromatin structure and gene expression in the beta-cells of individuals with type 2 diabetes (for more details, refer to her MSc. Research here: research link). Following the completion of her master’s degree, Jocelyn became a Research Technician/Lab Manager at the Pouladi Lab, where her research centered on the genetic components of rare neurological diseases. Subsequently, she transitioned to the Implantable Biosensing Laboratory (IBL) in December 2023, taking on the role of Research Coordinator. In this capacity, she contributes to the laboratory’s research operations and handles administrative responsibilities.
