Hello, my name is Brenda Canales, I am your 2017/2018 Jubilee Graduate Centre (JGC) Coordinator. 

I am originally from Mexico but I’ve been a postgraduate student at The University of Nottingham for 3 and a half years. I have done an MSc Oncology in 2013 and I’m currently in the final year of my PhD, where I have been studying uncharacterized genes that could be involved in tumour progression.

The Jubilee Graduate Centre is the ideal place to relax, socialize and study. As Graduate Centre Coordinator, I will make sure that everything is running smoothly and I will keep you informed about all the events we have planned for you, make sure you’re tuned to our Facebook page so you don’t miss out!

Feel free to ask me any questions and give any suggestions about events and things that can be improved. My door is always open when I’m at the Centre, alternatively you can drop me an email anytime.

I look forward to meeting you all!
