Dr. Krysta Coyle obtained her BSc in Microbiology & Immunology from UBC and developed a love for research while working as a co-op student in labs across Western Canada. She pursued PhD studies in Pathology at Dalhousie University. Krysta used a variety of in vitro and in vivo models, including patient-derived xenografts, to investigate gene regulation in response to retinoic acid.

Dr. Coyle came to SFU and joined Dr. Ryan Morin’s research group in September 2018. Her current research interests focus on alternative splicing as a mechanism of gene regulation in B-cell lymphomas. This work combines bioinformatics and molecular biology to understand how splicing affects lymphoma cell behavior.
