Georgia's research

Georgia Denbigh is in the fifth year of her BSc in Marine Biology with Concentrated Honours, and a Certificate in Science Leadership and Communication. She is currently working on her honors thesis in the Gunawardena lab, which investigates the signal transduction pathway in developmentally regulated programmed cell death (PCD) in lace plants. Her passion grew for cell biology during her Experiential Learning course in the PCD lab, where she focused on the intensity of reactive oxygen species among the various developmental stages of the lace plant. She continued her research in the PCD lab through her Special Topic course, where she examined the effect of key regulators of programmed cell death (PCD) on autophagosome. Georgia is extremely excited about continuing her work in the lab, as well as being able to work with several of the talented and encouraging lab members.

Georgia is an active member of the Dalhousie Association of Biology Students and has maintained an executive position in the Dalhousie Association of Marine Biology Students for the past two years. In 2015 she joined the Golden Key International Honours Society, being recognized as one of the top students of her class. Georgia has been enlisted in the Dalhousie Faculty of Science Dean’s List for the past four years, and in 2016 she received the Schulich Ocean Studies Initiative Scholarship to research coral reef ecosystems in Eilat, Israel. She has recently been awarded with the NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award and Sarah Lawson Summer Research Award to study the origin of the developmental signal for PCD and the involvement of cytochrome c in our model system, which will be related to her Honours thesis. She hopes apply the knowledge gained from lace plant PCD to other botanical marine organisms, and to eventually become a university professor to help students discover their inner potential.
