Assistant Professor, Queen’s University
Sarah Dick is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences and part of the Translational Medicine (TMED) Program in the Department of Medicine. Prior to this, she obtained her PhD in Cellular and Molecular Medicine from the University of Ottawa in the field of regenerative medicine under the supervision of Dr. Lynn Megeney at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI). This was followed by a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University Health Network (UHN) and Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research (TRCHR) in Toronto, in the laboratory of Dr. Slava Epelman. There she explored the ontogeny and heterogenity of tissue resident macrophages and described the role for cardiac macrophages in heart repair.

Seily is currently pursuing her MSc in Experimental Medicine at Queens. She completed her undergraduate studies in Biotechnology and worked as a Bioinformatician for 1 year before joining the Dick lab. She is passionate about human health, particularly in the field of cardiac diseases. Her current research project focuses on the regenerative ability of the heart and the communication between tissue resident macrophages (TRMs) and cardiac stromal cells.
Apart from academics, Seily enjoys hiking and traveling.

Abbey is an MSc student in the Translational Medicine (TMED) Graduate Program. Her project focuses on examining the role of tissue resident macrophages in skeletal muscle in mice and humans. Outside of the lab, Abbey enjoys reading, baking, and fishing!
Jasleen is currently pursuing her Master's in Biomedical Informatics at Queens. She completed her bachelor's in Pharmacy and had a Post graduate diploma in Research Analysis. Her project is to investigate macrophage heterogeneity in muscle tissue during injury using single-cell RNA seq analysis. Outside the lab, Jasleen loves to read.
Danielle is a 4th year undergraduate student in the Life Sciences specialization, in the Biomedical Sciences sub-plan. Her project involves examining the role of fibroblast-derived CSF-1 on the proliferation of resident cardiac macrophages. When she's not in the lab, she likes to bake, read books, and spend time with her friends!

Amanda is a 4th year student in Life Science with a specialization in Biomedical Discovery. Her 499 project involves examining the role of endothelial-derived CSF-1 in maintaining tissue resident macrophage subsets. Beyond the lab, Amanda is an avid reader who managed to devour 232 books in just one year—perhaps the secret behind her occasional procrastination habits!
Andrew is a 2nd year Life Sciences student at Queen's, specializing in Drug Discovery and Human Toxicology. Andrew is currently a volunteer in the lab, hoping to take on his own project this summer!
