George worked in the Soma Lab (2015-2018) as part of the Honours Program in Psychology and continued his research with funding from the Arts Undergraduate Research Award and the Work Learn Program and the NSERC USRA Program. George studied how consumption of sucrose (table sugar) by the mother affects the brain and behaviour of her offspring, as well as the gut microbiome (in collaboration with Prof. Brett Finlay). He also investigated the role of neural testosterone synthesis in behavioural flexibility. George presented his data at the UBC Undergraduate Neuroscience Conference and the UBC Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference, as well as the 2018 Society for Behavioral Neuroendocrinology meeting. He is a co-author on abstracts for major international scientific conferences.
George is currently in UBC Nursing School.
