Congratulations Madeline Tapson

The entire McMaster aDNA Centre would like to congratulate Madeline Tapson for the successful defence of her Master's thesis.

Madeline's thesis "An Analysis of Rodent Reservoirs of Plague During the Second Pandemic: Shifting Focus Towards a Multi-Host and Multi-Mechanism Model of Plague Maintenance and Reintroduction in the Past" highlights the complex roles that rodent reservoirs may have played in the persistence and reemergence of plague throughout history. Congratulations once again Maddie, and all the best in all your future endeavors!
