Intern Venture Target Discovery
A total of 23 Nobel Prize winning scientists - including its president Paul Nurse, Ph.D. - are associated with this unique research university, founded in 1901 and located in New York City. The university's over 70 major laboratories conduct research in the biological and biomedical sciences.
Dedicated and highly motivated postdoctoral researcher at NYU in the laboratory of Dr. Richard Tsien working to understand the long-term consequences of neuroinflammation on the brain. Received my PhD at The Rockefeller University in the laboratory of Dr. Elaine Fuchs. My doctoral work focused on the crosstalk between immune cells and skin epithelial stem cells within the context of inflammation. Here, I discovered that skin stem cells retain an epigenetic memory of prior inflammatory exposure that enhances their responsiveness to subsequent stressors. With near a decade of research experience at NYU, Rockefeller and the University of Pittsburgh, I have developed substantial critical thinking, presentation, and team-working skills in addition to the quintessential laboratory techniques. I am also interested in the business of science and translating my work to the clinic, and have participated in the Bench to Bedside Initiative whereby scientists work with Cornell's MBA students to create a start-up company as well as have completed a Corporate Finance course at NYU.
