PhD Candidate in Molecular Biology, Carleton University

Hanane Hadj-Moussa is a PhD Candidate in Carleton University, Ottawa Canada. Her work focuses on using molecular biology and biochemistry tools to study how animals can survive extreme environmental survival strategies. Her recent work focuses on how non-coding RNA control and metabolism and how we can apply this to human problems such as organ cryo-preservation. She has studied torpid lemurs and marsupials, freezing frogs, dehydrated snails, and oxygen-deprived naked mole rats and squid.
