Nikita Mahajan

President

PharmD Candidate

Prior to her studies at Waterloo, Nikita completed the Honours Bachelor of Health Science program at McMaster University. The program known as Biomedical Drug Discovery and Commercialization focused on drug discovery and development while equipping students with both research and business acumen. Through a problem-based learning method, students dove into various aspects of the commercialization process by working directly with industry representatives from GSK, Apotex, Innomar, Allergen and more. Her background also includes working on various research projects in fields such as infectious diseases and type 2 diabetes which allowed her to gain experience in the delivery of various scientific based presentations. Now at Waterloo, having just completed her first coop at MOHLTC Nikita has gained a newfound appreciation for the drug funding process. Nikita is looking forward to applying leadership skills, team and project management skills by being a part of a community in which science innovation and commercialization can be celebrated simultaneously!
