Julia Lupton, Laboratory Technician
I'm a lab technician that works on antibody sequencing at Rapid Novor. I went to the University of Guelph where I studied biochemistry. I honestly didn't pick this program for any other reason than that I liked biology and chemistry and wanted to do something within the science field.
