Leed McNabb successfully navigated the pandemic, and conducted his MSc on study subjects most difficult to get close to and obtain due to various restrictions.
His thesis was entitled “Quantifying the relationship of bilateral blood flow in glabrous skin at rest and during sympathetic perturbation”, co-supervised by Dr. Stephen Cheung (Kinesiology) and myself.
Here were are huddled in front of our computer screens enjoying Leed’s presentation and responses to our questions.
Many thanks to the external examiner, Dr. Derek Kimmerly (Dalhousie), examining committee member, Dr. Geoff Hartley (Nipissing University) and the chair, Dr. Nota Klentrou (Brock University) for their hard work and participation.
It was a distinct privilege to work with Leed, who I have known since his days as a Biological Sciences major, and an honour to be involved in the Kinesiology Department’s graduate program (Leed did all his research with Stephen Cheung’s lab). For me it was a time to learn how different schools think and train students, as well as an opportunity to learn how to work on a different study animal, Homo sapiens, an unusual species indeed for my lab.
