My name is Alex Cooke and I'll be your co-VP Academic with Nida Haider. I am a 3rd year PhD student based in Dr. Daskalopoulou's lab at the Glen. My research involves a mixed-methods evaluation of a physical activity promotion strategy in adults with hypertension and/or type 2 diabetes. 

Last year, I acted as your MGH and GCRC site representative. I had the chance to help organize the Annual McGill Biomedical Graduate Conference (AMBGC) and other academic events throughout the year. 

As a student, I looked forward to the AMBGC each year. It was a great opportunity to showcase my research, and obtain valuable feedback. This past year, as a member of the conference organizing committee, I had the chance to help behind the scenes, and now feel equipped to co-lead another great AMBGC. Above all, we are here to support all your EXMD academic needs and concerns throughout the year. We look forward to hearing from as many as you as we can so that we can plan these events for you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out:

I look forward to meeting you all!
