Lekha Sleno, President

Lekha Sleno is a professor in the chemistry department at UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal) since 2008. Her research interests focus on studying reactive metabolites covalently binding to proteins and developing new metabolomics-based methods using liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Originally from Montreal, she did her BSc (2002) in Biochemistry at Concordia University, followed by a PhD (2006) at Dalhousie (Chemistry, Prof. Dietrich Volmer), focused on bioanalytical mass spectrometry. She then went on to the University of Geneva (with Gerard Hopfgartner) in Switzerland for a first post-doc in pharmaceutical mass spectrometry, working on reactive drug metabolites, followed by a second post-doc at University of Toronto (with Andrew Emili) in proteomics.
