Past Lab Members
Undergraduate Student, Level II
Talha Yuksel is a second-year biochemistry student at McMaster University. He discovered his love for immunology during his first year of studies while working on a project relating to CAR-T cells. He was excited by the fact that the body's own defense mechanisms could be used to solve one of the most challenging health problems of our day. Talha is especially fascinated by how our immune system can be used to fight diseases like cancer. He's excited to work under Misaal and Leila's guidance on culturing NK cells, a type of immune cell that can be used in cancer therapies. Talha is very curious to see the implications of the lab's research in healthcare.
Outside of his studies, Talha enjoys playing music, a hobby that helps him relax and be creative.
