Eugene Cheung, Ph.D., is a research fellow at Harvard Medical School and Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston. He obtained his Ph.D. at North Carolina State University at Raleigh, his M.Sc. at the University of Windsor, and his H.B.Sc. at the University of Toronto. Eugene’s research interests focus on the neuroendocrine regulation of metabolism and reproduction.


Farwa Sajadi is a PhD candidate working in the lab of Dr. Jean-Paul Paluzzi, in the Department of Biology, York University. Her work focuses on examining the cellular mechanism and cross-talk between the hormonal regulators in Aedes mosquitoes. As a recipient of several awards and academic achievements, Farwa is continuing her research in mosquito physiology, which will hopefully have a huge influence on the damaging role mosquitoes play in disease epidemiology.
