Introducing our new summer intern, Marvin Yan! Marvin will be acting as our Patient Education Coordinator, helping to create new educational animations and other resources for the #MitoCommunity. We asked Marvin some fun questions so you can get to know him better. Read on!✨ What’s your educational background? I’m a biology and pharmacology co-op student at McMaster University.✨ What would you like to get out of your time with MitoCanada?I’d like to improve my video production skills while learning the science behind mitochondrial diseases, especially with how certain conditions can indirectly affect mitochondrial health. ✨ What do you think a future where all lives are powered by healthy mitochondria might look like?Mitochondria are implicated in so many conditions that strides made in mitochondrial health ultimately mean a healthier future for all. I can imagine a future where individual longevity is a guarantee and people are just as physically able at age 100 as age 20. ✨ What do you hope to contribute to MitoCanada?I hope to promote awareness and education of mitochondrial diseases. There’s a lack of easily accessible educational content and my goal is for MitoCanada to change this. ✨ What’s your favourite animal and why? Cats, hands down, but my bias may be from my family owning 6... so far.Thanks, Marvin, and welcome to the MitoCanada team! ... See MoreSee Less
