Courtney MacInnis is currently a Master’s student in the Department of Biological Sciences at University of Alberta. As a graduate student, she studies the viability and infectivity of Nosema ceranae spores in substrates associated with honey bee colonies after exposure to various environmental conditions. She hopes that her work will provide the beekeeping community with knowledge about how spores of N. ceranae survive in honey bee colonies and on beekeeping equipment. Upon completion of her Master’s degree, Courtney plans to pursue a career in apiculture research. In her spare time, Courtney enjoys curling and listening to live music.
