Research Profile

DERMATOLOGY, EDIT OLASZ-HARKEN, MD/PHD – MEDICAL COLLEGE OF WISCONSIN 07/2016 – PRESENT

This research focused on acquired genetic mutations within keratoacanthoma-type cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas which confer aggressive behavior. Additional studies to be performed include the histopathologic changes related to oral nicotinamide, and case series on pathologic diagnosis of small/medium pleomorphic T-cell lymphoma. I designed and coordinated the experiments, including RNA extraction and RT-PCR, performed chart review and statistical analysis of the data, and prepared the IRB, manuscript and abstract for presentation. Additional studies include patient recruitment, skin biopsy, and histopathology scoring/evaluation.

GYNECOLOGIC ONCOLOGY, ANIL K SOOD, MD – THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS MD ANDERSON 05/2012 – 05/2014

This research focused on alternatives to conventional anti-angiogenic therapies, specifically the bisphosphonate class, in an attempt to improve clinical outcomes in ovarian cancer patients. I maintained cell cultures, performed cell viability assays, ELISA, a variety of cell functional studies such as 3D tube formation assay, immunohistochemical staining, concluded a murine in vivo experiment with intraperitoneal injections, sacrifice and tumor harvesting, conducted a chart review, completed data analysis, assisted with the design of the research project, and wrote an original research article for publication and presentation

NEUROIMMUNOLOGY, MARY W MEAGHER, PHD – TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY 08/2009 – 08/2011

This research focuses on the effect of social disruption stress on Theiler’s murine encephalopathy viral infection, a mouse model of multiple sclerosis, in an effort to clarify stress as a risk factor for developing multiple sclerosis. I ran biological data through RNA/DNA extraction, RT-PCR, fluorescence, ELISA, ELISPOT, and performed tissue cross-sectional slicing, IHC staining and mounting. I performed various social behavioral tests on experimental mice, SDR, Von Frey, motor impairment analysis, dominance testing, sexual preference, forced swim test, burrowing and sacrifice with intraperitoneal injection, perfusion, and spleen, thymus, spinal cord and brain collection. Additionally I participated in the scoring of tissue slides, animal behavior, conducted data analysis, and assisted with writing the experimental methods section of original research articles for publication and presentation.
