On Oct 8th, 2021, Raymond defended his MSc work on heterogeneity in the pmrD gene in Shigella and E. coli. Raymond has been an integral part of the team since joining as an undergraduate in 2018. He initiated all of the Shigella work that is currently happening in the lab and he was a fantastic team player. He was responsible for training of many other undergraduate trainees in the lab and his. We will certainly miss his calm presence in the lab, but he won’t be far away – he’s started a new position at UHN and we hope he’ll continue to pop by the lab from time to time… he’s always welcome here!
