Denisa Urban relocated to Calgary after completing her PhD at the University of Toronto, Department of Biochemistry in 2013. Since then, she has been working as a post-doctoral fellow within the Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases where her responsibilities included heading several research projects simultaneously, as well as designing, implementing and troubleshooting experiments. Being an effective communicator, grant applications prepared by her for two major research projects were successfully funded by the Canadian Dermatology Foundation.

Having the opportunity to present at seminars, retreats, and scientific conferences, Denisa was able to build a strong academic network within Ontario and establish new connections in Alberta. She has a history of high impact publications and possesses four years of educational experience. With a strong desire for professional growth, Denisa has actively pursued ways of expanding and improving upon her skillset. Consequently, she has participated in workshops focusing on project management, team building, attended industry networking events, and taken a foundational course in business analysis.

In her spare time, Denisa enjoys drawing and painting in both natural and digital media. She also enjoys the many hiking opportunities available in and around the city of Calgary.
