Anouar Hafiane

Doctoral student
Cardiovascular Health Across the Lifespan Program

Anouar Hafiane is a true "super student" according to his supervisor, Dr. Jacques Genest. With an FRQS studentship to pursue his degree in lipoprotein biochemistry, Anouar is investigating the effect of two novel peptides in modulating high-density lipoprotein biogenesis and function for the treatment of atherosclerosis. Anouar's motivation and strong commitment have led to 16 papers, including 10 first-author publications to date, and he presents his work orally at multiple international meetings each year. His assay for HDL-mediated cholesterol efflux affords a standard procedure for research.
