University of Winnipeg biochemistry student, Evan Loeb, and honours physics student, Melissa Anderson, are leading the way for Indigenous students studying science to have increased access to networking, peer support, and mentorship during their studies.

They are inviting all Indigenous students studying science to join them as they form UWinnipeg’s first chapter of The American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES).

Anderson learned about AISES from UWinnipeg alumnus, Mark Abotossaway, who spoke at an Indigenous Students in Science event at UWinnipeg in 2018.
