26 yo UofT organic chemistry student on Forbes "Top 30 Under 30" list

The only Canadian, eh? Kudos!

It is her curious mind that has just earned the University of Toronto PhD candidate a place on Forbes‘ “Top 30 Under 30” list for science. She is the only Canadian on the list, described by Forbes as the “greatest gathering of young game changers, movers and makers.”

The 26-year-old organic chemist is being recognized for discovering an efficient way to recreate molecules found naturally in plants. Her discovery could fight cancer at its source by decreasing abnormal cell growth.
