While finishing her second year of her Bachelor of Medical Sciences degree at Western University, Haley did a summer internship in the lab. Her interests are pathology, immunology, and physiology.
"In the Arrieta lab, I gained experience with microbiology and immunology lab techniques, working with animals, and data analysis. My summer project studied the effect of an intestinal fungal overgrowth on asthma pathogenesis and fungal growth regulation by short-chain fatty acids. I’m confident that the hands-on experience I gained in the lab will strengthen my future academic work as I go into my 3rd year of a Bachelor’s in Pathology. I am very grateful to have been a part of the Arrieta team and I will miss everyone very much!"
