About Raj Thapa (BSc ’12), Current PhD Student:
Originally from Nepal, Raj Thapa completed a year of undergraduate studies in the U.S. then transferred to the University of Lethbridge to complete his Bachelor of Science in neuroscience.
“The world-renowned neuroscience faculty at the CCBN is what brought me to the U of L, and the department's excellence in research training is what has kept me here for grad studies. The U of L's neuroscience program allowed me to jump right into research. The focus is on learning through independently leading a research project. The program is helping me gather tools in terms of methods, data analysis techniques and creative and critical thinking necessary to pursue the questions I hope to answer someday.”
