RESEARCH:   

     Undergraduate

        Summer 2000, University of Washington:  Worked in conjunction with PhD candidate Lisa M. Wiester and Dr. Cecilia          Giachelli, professor of bioengineering to  study calcification characteristics of bovine valve interstitial cells by first                inducing mineralization of bovine valve interstitial cells in culture and then used 3 agents to inhibit the calcification.           This study was performed with the intent of gaining some understanding of ectopic calcification which is the leading            cause of native and bioprosthetic valve failure in humans.    

 

        Summer 2001, University of California, Berkeley:  Worked with Dave Lubertozzi, PhD candidate, and Dr. Jay                            Keasling, professor of chemical engineering to confirm  integration of the lacZ gene from E. coli into the genome of                the filamentous fungus,  Aspergillus nidulans. This study explored the effectiveness of gene transfer to A. nidulans by          examining the number of copies successfully integrated into the gene, and pin-pointing their locations in the genome          of A. nidulans.  By studying gene manipulation in fungi, much information can be revealed about the working cells of            higher organisms.  In addition, A. nidulans has great economical and industrial  significance since it is an excellent                    producer of citric acid, soy sauce, and antibiotics.

 

   Medical School

     Summer   2003, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX:  Worked in conjunction with Christopher Muller,           otolaryngology resident, and Dr. Karen Calhoun, department chair of otolaryngology,  to determine if it is safe and                 effective to perform delayed autologous vein interposition grafting in the rat femoral vein. The significance of   this               research is based on the fact that the majority of free flap failure in head and neck surgery involving microvascular               anastomoses are due to venous thrombosis.

 

    Residency     

      April 2009  University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX:

      Title: Semicircular Canal Malformation in Caspase-3 Knockout Mice

      Collaboration with Dr. Tomoko Makishima, assistant professor, department of otolaryngology-UTMB and Dr. Timothy        Huller, assistant professor, department of otolaryngology-Washington University. Temporal bones from mice were              harvested and then dissected under microscopic guidance.  Inner ear morphology was recorded using digital                            photography and micro CT scan imaging. Cochlear and vestibular components were measured and compared among          wild type (C57BL), Casp3 heterozygous, and Casp3 knockout mice
