Diana completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Toronto, with a focus on Molecular Biology and Biological Chemistry. She then obtained her MSc at the Department of Chemistry, York University, developing microfluidic device-coupled mass spectrometry to study protein dynamics in the context of small molecule interactions, under the supervision of Dr. Derek J. Wilson.
She is currently pursuing her PhD at the University of Toronto in the Department of Medical Biophysics under the co-supervision of Dr. Linda Penn and Dr. Brian Raught. Her PhD research is focussed on building an understanding of the interactomes of the MYC family of proteins and how MYC interacting partners could contribute to MYC-driven oncogenesis. We are utilizing state of the art mass spectrometry techniques, such as BioID, to elucidate complex MYC family Interactomes.
