Meet Our Winnipeg Team
The S2BN team at the University of Manitoba works collaboratively to host events for undergraduate and graduate students looking to enhance their skill set and prepare themselves for the workforce after completing their studies.

I am fourth year undergraduate student in the Faculty of Science at the University of Manitoba. I am interested in spinal cord injury research, specifically the effects of electrical stimulation and exercise in improving function and movement after injury. I also worked on a project to identify the validity of International Codes of Disease (ICD) codes in the identification of spinal cord injuries in Manitoba. I am excited to bridge the gap between academia and industry and get undergraduates and graduate students to learn and explore all the different opportunities available.
I am in my fourth year of my Bachelor of Science (Maj.) Co-op degree in Integrative Biology. I have an eclectic history in science - from working alongside field technicians in South Africa studying sex-ratio biases in ground squirrels to working parallel with arctic biologists in government labs analyzing changes in marine vertebrate physiology in response to climate stressors. I am passionate abut bridging the gap between science and industry. I joined Science to Business to promote opportunities beyond academia to both undergraduate and graduate students.
Andrew WH Tse
I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba. I was trained in medical biophysics and biomedical engineering at Western University. My research is on translational biotechnology such as nanoparticle drug delivery systems and biosensors. Currently I am investigating potential methods of drug delivery to administer microRNAs as potential therapeutic options using nanoparticles to rescue abnormal fetal lung development in CDH, while minimizing maternal exposure. I am excited to contribute to a team that is dedicated to helping trainees succeed and develop professionally.
Events Coordinator, Treasurer
I am a fourth year undergraduate student in the Faculty of Science. I work with a lab team, helping to culture human lung cells and perform western blots for certain proteins of interest. This work is a small contribution to the larger goal of the lab, which is to understand asthma at the cellular level and how certain drugs can influence the cellular pathways within the lung tissue. I joined S2BN to expand my horizons and gain more experience in the fields of science and business.
