Betty Adewusi, M.Sc.

Project Manager


My name is Betty, and I am originally from Nigeria, but I have been privileged to call Canada home since 2013. I lived in Vancouver, British Columbia for 8 years where I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Neuroscience from Simon Fraser University in 2017. During this time, I was exposed to medical research, and my first ever research project involved the development of a clinical tool to assist physicians to visualize and automatically estimate the volume of bleed from CT scans of patients with acute hemorrhagic stroke. 

I went on to work as a research assistant at Fraser Health Authority, and my continued love for research led me to pursue my Master’s Degree which I completed in 2021 at the SFU ImageTech Lab located in Surrey Memorial Hospital in British Columbia. For my MSc. thesis, I designed and implemented an fMRI experiment to measure cognitive improvement in patients undergoing carotid angioplasty and stenting as treatment for severe carotid stenosis. This research was supported by scholarships from both the CIHR and BC SUPPORT UNIT. 

I have lived in Halifax since 2021, and between 2022-2024, I worked with Nova Scotia Health on a large research project that aims to map out cancer prevention initiatives in Atlantic Canada. Currently, I am working as a Project Manager for the OPTIMISING ACCESS project, led by Dr. Noreen Kamal. In this project, we aim to create a national acute stroke registry that will track and aid improvement in access to and delivery of life-saving endovascular treatment for all stroke patients across Canada.
