Dr. Aspeslet is now the CEO of Translational Research in Oncology (TRIO) as well as Chair of the Board of Directors at Applied Pharmaceutical Innovation (API). She did her undergraduate degree in Chemistry at the University of Lethbridge, and her PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Alberta.
