Farzan Ansari, Class of 2025

Hello, my name is Farzan Ansari. Before attending Queen’s Medicine, I graduated from Kinesiology at York University in 2020. I was one of the students who did end up taking a gap year after my undergrad in which I worked at Sunnybrook hospital as a Covid Screener/Porter. My extracurricular background was very sports related and mentoring/tutoring heavy having mainly been involved with youth related activities. I did also volunteer extensively at Sunnybrook hospital throughout my undergrad as well. My background however was very limited in terms of research. Please ask me any questions you may during my panel portion and looking forward to meeting you all! 

Danny Ke, Class of 2025

I graduated from Biomedical Science at uOttawa last year; the degree covers molecular biology with anatomy and psychology on the side. My ECs included volunteering at Kids Help Phone as a Crisis Text Responder, volunteering at my local hospital, and founding a charity at school that hosts volunteer-tutoring for charity. My research experiences were diverse, from neuroscience to ecology to computational drug metabolism.
