YaWen Huang is a grade 11 student at Grant Park High School, who's interest and passion for neuroscience began in grade 9 upon approaching the lab of Dr. Gordon Glazner at the St. Boniface Albretchsen Research Centre. This interest has lead to the expansion of skills within, and outside of the lab. YaWen aims to contribute to the exploration of the pathology and mechanisms that occur in the brain in the circumstances of disease. Apart from the lab and science, YaWen enjoys spending time with friends and family, and creating art.
