Uyen is a visiting researcher from the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver (Canada) with an interest in applying single-cell omic technologies to understand cellular interactions and cell states in cancer and autoimmunity. During her undergrad at UBC, Uyen studied the phenotype of regulatory T cells in Type 1 diabetes in the lab of Dr. Megan Levings. Subsequently as a Master’s student in the lab, Uyen worked in two clinical trials characterising the immune aspects of physical exercise and photopheresis in ameliorating the adverse effects of stem cell transplantation. In her free time, she strolls, watches comedies, reads biographies, and eats chocolate-coated pretzels (occasionally all at once).
