Susanne Bechstedt

Sanni grew up in Berlin, Germany. After research excursions into ion channels and sensory neurons, her passion got captured by the cytoskeleton. She now vouches to make microtubules great again.
Sanni’s short career in ultimate frisbee did not quite pay the bills. Though, she still enjoys chasing plastic as well as riding her bike and torturing students. 

Thomas McAlear

Tom grew up in New England, born to Canadian parents. He graduated in  Biology and Computer Science from McGill to the delight of his family. Tom plays on the McGill Ultimate Team and is a World Champion in that sport, which was his only qualification at the time of hiring. He thoroughly enjoys OAP, baking pies, and his cottage.

Siobhan Schenk

Siobhan grew up in Edmonton (AB) and Fredericton (NB) where she was a synchronised swimmer and competed in the Canada Winter Games. Siobhan obtained her undergraduate degree in biology at UWO. She enjoys painting, petting dogs, and still swims as much as she can.
