Residents & Students
I am a senior medical student at Yale University School of Medicine working in the lab of Dr. Robert Weiss. This past year I participated in the NIH clinical and translation science research fellowship working to develop an ex vivo system for bladder cancer and researching si (small interfering)-RNA therapy as a treatment for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. I received my undergraduate education at Michigan State University (MSU) where I participated in the National Science Foundation undergraduate research program in mathematics and biology working in Dr. Kathleen Gallo’s lab researching the molecular mechanism regulating protein kinases, focusing on mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinases (MAPKKK) and their role on signaling in breast cancer and neurodegenerative disorders.
My current research projects involve gene targeted therapy for bladder cancer and studying the synergy between hyperthermia and chemotherapy as a treatment for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer.
