In this episode, Rima chats with Noor Al Kaabi, a master's student in Institute of Medical Sciences program at UofT and part of Dr. Dmitry Rozenberg's lab at the Toronto General Hospital Research Institute.
The episode follows how Noor's journey of exploring various research topics in undergrad such as refugee mental health and improving care for organ transplant recipients with UHN's Kidney Health Education and Research Group, eventually led to her master's project where she was directly involved in developing a cross-sectional study using both quantitative and qualitative approaches to study the relationship of respiratory symptoms with health related quality of life, physical activity levels and daily functioning of people with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD). Tune in to find out how Noor finds balance between her work in research and her other interests including science communication, photography, and becoming a personal trainer.
