Peter received his BSc (Hons) in Human Biology: Health and Disease at the University of Toronto and is currently pursuing a PhD in the Department of Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto.


In the Penn Lab, his research involves investigating the functional and structural relationship between MYC (a highly potent oncogene) and R-loops (DNA-RNA hybrids involved in transcriptional regulation and genetic instability) to identify genetic signatures that can be exploited to treat breast cancer.
