Outside the research lab Ryan is a hockey fanatic. Good thing he found his way to Toronto! Now if only he could combine his passion for ice hockey with computational biology... Perhaps there’s an ice-hockey gene? IHOC1? Better study the Canadian population! Beyond hockey, Ryan enjoys all genres of music (Vivaldi to Gangster Rap) and spicy food!
