Victoria is currently completing her 4th year honors research project. She is investigating the effects of acclimation on the thermal plasticity of Na+/K+-ATPase and chill-coma in Drosophila melanogaster and hopes the results will help lead to a better understanding of the physiological mechanisms involved with chill-coma. Victoria has spent the past year completing a science internship at GlaxoSmithKline Inc. in Mississauga, and is looking forward to being back in London for the year.
