Cricia Rinchon, Institute of Medical Science – MSc Y2

I’m in the second year of my Master’s program with the Institute of Medical Science, studying neuroplasticity in Parkinson’s disease using various brain stimulation techniques. Outside of the lab, I write for my departmental magazine (IMS Magazine), organize the Industry Case Study with the Life Science Career Development Society, and paddle for the Rotman Commerce Liquid Assets Dragon Boat Team.

    Thanks Sharen! You were a big help — always good to hear from the “real source”. I will go back for sure.

  • Love the pinball cafe post and pretty much the whole blog. Way to go, Trish. I was not expecting this to be so funny. Are you announcing these posts on twitter anywhere?

  • Loved all your blog entries! Especially, the Picasso exhibition saga 🙂 I am planning to go and experience his work here in Toronto, when I failed to see it in spring in Paris. Slight ‘sprinkles’ of humor is definitely cheered me up for my thesis analysis-writing process.

  • Thanks Rahat! I hope you enjoy the Picasso exhibit – I think it’s best enjoyed by someone else ; P
