Rose Wang joined the Upstream lab in 2017. She holds a HBSc in Neuroscience, and a MPH with specialization in Epidemiology. Prior to joining the lab, her research experience gradually shifted from neuroscience to a more holistic approach to understanding health conditions from a broader perspective, which incorporates the social determinants that shape our health. She has a strong interest in exploring ways to identify and narrow the gaps that drive health inequities, and discovering innovative approaches to improve efficiencies within our health systems and across the team.
At the Upstream lab she helps to manage lab operations, and currently supports several projects including the IGNITE study, ANTICIPATE study, and SPARK study. She feels privileged to be part of this dynamic team who not only share in their diverse perspectives and strengths, but also connect through a unified vision toward social justice.
