I completed my BSc (Hons) in microbiology in 1983 at the University of Manitoba. I was fascinated by the new tools that were becoming popular for characterizing and manipulating DNA, and therefore I pursued my PhD in microbiology at the University of Manitoba with an emphasis of molecular genetics. After completing my PhD in 1987, I decided to transition into human genetics by undertaking postdoctoral training at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, and subsequently McGill University-Montreal Childrens Hospital Research Institute. In 1991, I returned to the University of Manitoba as an assistant professor in the department of biochemistry and molecular biology (now biochemistry and medical genetics).The Triggs-Raine laboratory investigates the molecular mechanisms underlying human genetic disorders and potential treatments using preclinical models of these disorders.
