Kaden Fujita

Biological Sciences

At uLethbridge, students play a key role in the discoveries you learn about in the classroom. By participating in the investigative journey, your learning goes beyond the theory to practical application.

As you participate in research, your creativity grows and your confidence to handle future academic challenges skyrockets. You gain critical-thinking and communication skills that will help you in advanced studies or in the workplace. You’ll also have the opportunity to work with some of the world’s most accomplished researchers.

From his first year at uLethbridge, Kaden Fujita was part of the Research Internship Concentration (RIC), which allows students in biological sciences to develop research skills and participate in unique and current research projects throughout their degree.

“Being a member (of the concentration) has played a huge role in how much I have enjoyed being a biology major,” explains Kaden. “You get to learn how to do research, read the literature, design your own experiments and do hands-on work.”

Participating in RIC led to a chance to work on a research project at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Lethbridge Research and Development Centre. There, Kaden looked at ways wheat can be genetically modified to make it more disease-resistant. He later presented a paper on his findings at the Undergraduate Research in Science Conference of Alberta, which gives students a chance to engage with faculty and see what research projects other undergraduate students are working on.

This summer, Kaden was back in the lab to work with Dr. Tony Russell on a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)-funded project researching single-cell organisms called euglena and how it regulates its cellular functions, a project with potential implications for future research in biotechnology.

“It's pretty cool to think that I could someday get to a point where the research I'm doing could have a positive effect on the world,” says Kaden. “I don't know if I’d get that opportunity anywhere else.”
