Shawn McGuirk

Science & Policy Exchange
President
Montreal, Canada Area
Shawn is a senior Ph.D. student and Vanier Scholar at the Goodman Cancer Research Centre at McGill University. In the laboratory of Dr. St-Pierre, he studies the role of metabolism in cancer progression, from tumor onset to metastasis and therapeutic resistance. He also develops open-source software tools to facilitate complex analyses, such as metabolic profiling, and contributes to student life with the Biochemistry Graduate and Goodman Centre Student Societies. He has also founded ProVivoX Inc. in 2013 with fellow trainees following a successful bid to license a novel technique for prognosis of survival outcome in breast cancer patients; the startup won top prizes at the NIH/CAI Breast Cancer Startup Challenge and Fondation Montreal’s Your Ideas Are Good Business competition before closing in 2016. Shawn joined Science & Policy Exchange in 2013 and currently serves as President (previously Treasurer). With a strong team and board of directors, he hopes to help SPE reach its full potential as a student-driven think tank.
