Brian Rempel received his undergraduate degree from the University of Alberta (B.Sc. Hons. 2003) and went on to do his graduate training in the lab of Dr. Stephen G. Withers at the University of British Columbia (Ph.D., 2009). His graduate work focused on the synthesis and enzymatic evaluation of activated fluorosugars as covalent inactivators of glycosidases. His work was funded by both NSERC and the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research during this time. He is currently teaching organic chemistry at the University of Alberta, Augustana campus in Camrose, Alberta.
