- Research Co-op Student, GERAS Centre
Yulika is currently in her final year of the Honours Molecular Biology and Genetics Co-op program at McMaster University. At the GERAS Centre, Yulika is involved with the Fit Hips study, which utilizes an exercise intervention to improve post-surgery outcomes for those undergoing hip or knee replacement surgery.
She is also involved with DANCE, a study that aims to improve cognition and mobility in older adults through dance classes. Outside of GERAS, Yulika is actively involved in the student affairs of McMaster University as a Student Representative for the Faculty of Science. With a deep interest in health equity, Yulika hopes to enter a Master’s Program in Public Health to help reduce the burden of disease in vulnerable populations both locally and abroad.
