Shelley Lumba,

Assistant Professor

I specialized in molecular genetics during my undergraduate studies (2000) and applied these principles to study plant hormone signalling and development during my PhD at the University of Toronto (2006). I established high-throughput protein interaction methods in my post-doctoral work at the University of Toronto. I became an assistant professor in the Department of Cell and Systems Biology at The University of Toronto in September, 2016.
