Our team is formed by Canadian and International students and scientists, led by Amir Arellano-Saab and Katrina Hass, and mentored by Dr. Peter Stogios. We decided to start SciForAll in an effort to produce scientifically accurate information for the general public.
Amir Arellano Saab, MSc
Amir is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Cell and Systems Biology (McCourt Lab) and BioZone (Savchenko Lab) at the University of Toronto. His doctoral studies focus on the structural and biochemical characterization of hypersensitive protein receptors in the food crop parasite Striga. Amir is interested in drug design, protein engineering, and directed evolution; he enjoys teaching and is always intrigued by cool biological problems that can be solved by Structural Biology.
Katrina Hass, BHSc
Katrina is a MSc student in the Biomedical Communications program at the Institute of Medical Science, University of Toronto. Katrina is an artist, storyteller, and communicator interested in biomedical visualization and design. She uses her passion for art to promote an understanding of the sciences by transforming complex scientific concepts into simplified, engaging, and informative visual pieces.
We thank our team of scientific advisors, translators, and sponsors!
