3-minute thesis competition

Paul's first foray into science communication was at the local 3-minute thesis competition during his MSc research. There, he described why detecting fecal contamination helps public health efforts and how sequencing-based microbiome profiling can push those efforts forward. His communication skills were on show as he won the People's Choice award for his efforts.

Cystic fibrosis advocacy

His passion for science communications continued into advocacy work while undertaking his PhD in biochemistry. As a Cystic Fibrosis Canada regional advocate, he prepared pitches to let government officials know about the benefits of Trikafta, a life-changing cystic fibrosis drug. Those efforts resulted in the drug being fast-tracked for approval in Canada, enhancing the lives of Canadian CF patients.
