UBC student Benjamin Martin represented Canada at the Rio 2016 Olympics in Men’s Field Hockey.
Benjamin is currently a PhD candidate in LeAnn Howe’s Lab a the LSI. When not practicing his field hockey skills, he studies how gene expression states are maintained, in other words, how cells remember what they are.
Team Canada battled hard but unfortunately didn’t make it to the medal rounds. Despite this, competing at such an event is an incredible opportunity.
Congratulations to Ben on an outstanding achievement!
