During her Doctoral studies she was a recipient of the Western Regional Training Centre for Health Services Research (WRTC) Doctoral scholarship; Michael Smith Foundation for Health Services, Doctoral training award and, was awarded the Northern Studies Trust Scholarship (NSTP) by the Association of Canadian Universities for Northern Studies (ACUNS) in 2004. She has a Masters of Nursing from the University of British Columbia and Bachelor's of Science in Nursing from McMaster University. Her Doctoral research focused on the issues of sexually transmitted chlamydia and gonorrhea infections among isolated Inuit communities in Nunavut and the use of universal screening. Dr. Steenbeek is also a community health nurse and has worked in several communities in the Baffin region and in First Nations communities in rural British Columbia.

Dr. Steenbeek is currently an associate professor at Dalhousie University and teaches both undergraduate and graduate level courses in nursing. She continues to conduct circumpolar research in the areas of sexual health, gender health disparities and nursing education.

Jaylene Wheeler

Jaylene has proposed Assessing Urban Alaska Native Peoples' Knowledge and Attitudes Regarding Research and Specimen Banks. This study will assess the knowledge and attitudes Native people have about research and specimen banks using two methods, semi-directed focus groups and a self-administered questionnaire.
Jaylene Wheeler, an aspiring Native researcher, is of both Inupiaq and St. Lawrence Island Yupik descent. Raised in Nome, Jaylene is the eldest of two children born to Angela (Soolook) and Emory Wheeler. She is the mother of one son, Christian Douglas (18 months).
Jaylene's interest in developing a career in research began during her last year in undergraduate school at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). For her senior project in the Rural Development (RD) program, she explored and discussed the relationship between traditional knowledge, research and community development. Through that student-led learning process, she was introduced to the Maori research movement in New Zealand, and realized that similar efforts needed to be started at home.
Although Jaylene acknowledges the fact that the Native community's experience with research has not historically been positive or just, she is optimistic that it can be beneficial if more Native people obtain the education and training necessary to conduct their own research projects. Related to that, she also says that both grassroots leaders and recognized management need to help create a supportive environment for the true benefits of Native-led research to be fully realized.
Jaylene is employed in Southcentral Foundation's (SCF) Research Office as a Project Manager. Among other responsibilities, she created the organization's first research internship and is currently helping develop study operation manuals for two new research projects (tobacco/pregnancy and alcohol/pregnancy). A current graduate student in the Rural Development (RD) master's program, Jaylene hopes to one day earn a doctorate degree.

Jeppe Friborg, JPHH-award winner from The Danish/Greenlandic Soci-ety for Circumpolar Health

Jeppe Friborg graduated MD in 1997 from University of Southern Denmark, and has worked in internal medicine and oncology. His research has been performed while working at the Department of Epidemiology Research, Statens Serum Institut in Copenhagen, and has covered child mortality, virology and cancer epidemiology in Greenland. In August 2005 he finished his PhD thesis on aspects of cancer and nasopharyngeal carcinoma among Greenlanders. Currently he holds a post-doc appointment at University of Minnesota, to study environmental risk factors for nasopharyngeal carcinoma in an Asian population.
The studies included in his PhD thesis described the temporal changes in the Greenlandic cancer pattern with emphasis on the epidemiology of nasopharyngeal carcinoma, besides various aspects of the immunological response to EBV in Greenlanders.

Харьков Владимир Николаевич

Харьков Владимир Николаевич, кандидат биологических наук, научный сотрудник ГУ НИИ медицинской генетики ТНЦ СО РАМН.
Родился 20 октября 1979 года.
В 2002 году окончил Томский государственный университет, защитив степень магистра биологии. 2002-2005 аспирант ГУ НИИ медицинской генетики ТНЦ СО РАМН. В 2005 году защитил кандидатскую диссертацию на тему "Структура линий Y-хромосомы в популяциях Сибири". В работе была проведена подробная молекулярно-генетическая характеристика генофонда коренных популяций Сибири, в том числе приполярных регионов. В результате были выявлены генетические взаимоотношения между этносами Сибири, что позволяет точнее реконструировать процесс заселения современным человеком этой территории, и историю формирования генофондов современных популяций.
Опубликовано 20 печатных работ. Основные статьи опубликованы в журнале "Генетика". Результаты исследований представлены на различных российских и международных конференциях.
Являлся руководителем трех персональных грантов Российского Фонда фундаментальных исследований. Участвовал в качестве исполнителя в выполнении 8-ми коллективных грантов РФФИ. Являлся руководителем двух грантов в рамках Федеральной целевой научно-технической программы "Исследования и разработки по приоритетным направлениям развития науки и техники" и исполнителем пяти грантов в рамках этой программы.
