For Soroush Moallef, this means both current and future support of his research.
“I aim to complete my thesis by the end of this year, so this award will greatly benefit the timeliness of my research,” he says. “The award will also support the credibility of my work and future endeavours in research.”
Moallef is involved in research at the BC Centre on Substance Use, looking at knowledge of the Good Samaritan Drug Overdose Act and responses to drug overdose events in several community-recruited cohorts of people who use illicit drugs in Vancouver.
“The opportunity to work with many leading research scientists, especially in the Faculty of Health Sciences, has been a highlight of my SFU experience,” says Moallef. “One of these individuals is my supervisor, Kanna Hayashi, who has provided me with tremendous support and academic training since my undergrad.”
