Jenna-Lynn Senger Wins National Plastic Surgery Award

    July 24, 2019

     Congratulations to Dr. Jenna-Lynn Senger for winning the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons (CSPS) Best Basic Science award. Dr. Senger recently successfully completed her final doctoral oral exam (PhD): “Conditioning Electrical Stimulation to Enhance Regeneration and Reinnervation Following Peripheral Nerve Injury”. Last year she received the inaugural Canadian Association of Chairs of Surgical Research Golden Scalpel Research Award. It recognizes the top trainee research abstract and presentation from across the country.  
    Her supervisors are Drs. Christine Webber and K. Ming Chan.
