Mr. Uppal received his Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry at the UBC. Currently, he is a Master of Science student in the Experimental Medicine Program at the UBC. Mr. Uppal specializes in basic science experimental techniques. Using these techniques, he is investigating the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration. In particular, Mr. Uppal is investigating the role of the protease, granzyme B, that is contained in mast cells in the eye. If he could collaborate with other researchers, Mr. Uppal would connect with computer science researchers with a background in the biological sciences. Artificial intelligence has shown great promise in detecting markers from images. Therefore, a computer scientist would be able to accelerate the rate of data sorting.

Mr. Uppal enjoy playing sports. This includes hockey, basketball, tennis and more!
