SPACE is pleased to present Dr. Sabrina Leslie, plenary speaker for ScienceFest 2020.
Dr. Leslie is an Associate Professor of Physics and Quantitative Life Sciences at McGill University and the principle investigator at the McGill University Leslie Lab where her research focusses on the fascinating behaviour of macromolecules in squeezed, crowded, and complex environments; conditions which reflect the biochemistry inside living cells. She is also the co-founder of ScopeSys, a Canadian startup company whose mandate is to bring single-molecule precision and control to real-world applications.
Most recently, Dr. Leslie has been awarded the 2020 Young Investigator Award for her outstanding contributions to the field of single-molecule biophysics. Her other distinguished recognitions include the Women in Entrepreneurship Award, the Biophysical Society of Canada Young Investigator Award, the NSERC Accelerator Award and the adMare and Clark Executive Leadership Fellowships.
