Attributes that best describes:
My name is Christopher Saunders and I graduated McGill University with a bachelor’s of science in biochemistry and laboratory techniques and have been working in research and clinical labs since my graduation.
During my undergraduate degree I worked as a research assistant in Dr Gonzalo’s chemistry laboratory working in an independent research project. I was responsible for my project involving HIV reverse transcriptase and binding activity when in varying concentrations of solvents. I was assigned to read large amounts of text, research papers and abstracts. I learned about the chemistry and biochemistry field of research and took a strong liking to the intricate and delicate laboratory techniques used. I had the unique experience of being a unit coordinator at the Montreal Children’s Hospital while at McGill studying. This experience gave me an appreciation for the fast paced environment of healthcare and direct experience working with children and parents. I was responsible for organizing and reading doctor’s notes, organizing and categorizing laboratory results as well as keeping the department organized and structured for everyday use.
Post graduation, I pursued more experience at the clinical level. I was in time hired at the Research Institute of The Montreal Children’s Hospital as a research coordinator. Since I began at the institute in 2011, I have been responsible for grant submission reviews, grant proposal write up and completion, abstract reviewing and correction, webpage content management and upkeep, data quality management, preparing presentations and general office management. I have worked on a variety of projects with many physicians and have had the opportunity to strengthen my skills in the fields of clinical research, content management as well as project coordination.
