Helene-Marie Goulding is a medical laboratory technologist registered with the Canadian Society of Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) and the College of Medical Laboratory Technologist of Ontario. She joined the Faculty of Health Sciences in 2006 as a laboratory instructor in the Clinical Microbiology course and is now a full-time faculty member. Her current research project includes antimicrobial resistance of non-invasive Group A Strep and teaching innovations.

Recently, she was involved with the harmonization of the fourth-year competencies with The Michener Institute for Applied Health Sciences in Toronto, Ontario and St. Lawrence College in eastern Ontario. In addition she participated in writing an online self-assessment test for foreign-trained medical laboratory technologists for CSMLS.

In the summer of 2008, she developed the first virtual laboratory in the Medical Laboratory Science program - an online version of the Microbiology Standard Operating Procedures. During the 2009 CSMLS National Congress, she helped promote this innovative approach to teaching by showcasing the virtual laboratory.

She was the honoured recipient of the 2009 UOIT Complementary Faculty Teaching Award.
