My role this year is facilitating the MRSS journal club. My research interests include neurosurgery and neuroscience. For new researchers, my top tip is to learn how to search the literature and get comfortable with reading stats.

Hasna Kazi

Preclinical Representative

Hi! I'm interested in research because it can have a wide impact at the population level, and because there is so much left to learn about medicine. I'm very excited to set up some new events for the preclinical cohort this year!

Katya Gvozdenko

Sponsorship Officer

I've always found the idea of making discoveries and answering 'whys' enticing. Being a clinician-scientist has been a lifelong dream, and I am excited for what MRSS will do in 2022. I also love case competitions, maybe one day I'll do a short stint in the consulting world 🙂

Ray Ren

Chair

Hi everyone! My name is Ray and I'm the MRSS Chair for 2022. Having done an Honours year in Neurology, my interest in research is driven heavily by seeing the real-life impact it makes on improving patient care. Research is so powerful because it enables and propels these novel treatment decisions.
