Mentorship Representative

Colleen Farrell
“I’m Colleen and I will be this year’s co-mentorship representative with Tara Zeitoun for the NSGSA! I am looking forward to creating a supportive and inclusive environment within the DNS community by connecting upper-year graduate students with incoming students with the goal of providing a smoother transition into graduate school.

I am a 2nd year MSc student in Dr. Deborah O’Connor’s lab. My research investigates the lesser-known role of the large intestine in folate absorption and factors affecting the regulation of colonic folate transporters. When I am not in the lab doing experiments, you can find me cooking, listening to podcasts, and biking around the city!

I hope to see you at our NSGSA events this year (even if they’re virtual)!”
