Jeffrey LawJeffrey Law was born and raised in London, Ontario. He is the middle child in his family, and has two brothers, Nathan and Evan. Some interesting facts about Jeffrey is that he is left handed, allergic to peanuts, and was enrolled in French immersion.  

Being enrolled in the Medical Sciences program during Undergrad, Jeffrey has always been fascinated by science and the medical applications of research. In the summer of 2008, Jeffrey's interest in scientific research intensified when he was awarded a competitive NSERC Undergraduate Student Award, and became trained as a summer research student in Dr. Moshmi Bhattacharya's Molecular Cancer Research laboratory. Building upon this summer experience, he decided to continue in the Bhattacharya lab for his 4th year honors thesis research project. In the fall of 2009, he entered graduate studies at the University of Western Ontario. He is currently supervised by Dr. Moshmi Bhattacharya and Dr. Lynne Postovit, and is investigating Nodal signaling in human trophoblast cells.
