    I worked with Dr Nicole Linka in the Weber lab to characterize a novel peroxisomal ATP transporter protein in Arabidopsis thaliana These two wonderful labs convinced me to pursue my Ph D and I choose to come to Duke in order to focus on biomedical research Here I joined Dr Dennis Ko s lab where I study variation in human cytokine response to Salmonella as a measure of cytokine expression

    Genetic Epidemiology at the University of Washington in Seattle Washington My undergraduate research in the Ruohola Baker Lab focused on elucidating causal mutations related to the Muscular Dystrophy phenotypes observed in mutant Drosophila melanogaster My graduate research shifted focus towards human genetics investigating genetic susceptibility to colorectal neoplasia and genetic interactions with nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drug use in the lipoxygenase pathway at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center After finishing my MS I completed a one year CDC APHL fellowship in Emerging Infectious Diseases During my fellowship I worked at the California Department of Public Health Microbial Diseases Laboratory characterizing emerging multi drug resistance in a Salmonella Typhimurium outbreak and validating a new cpn60 gene target for broad range sequence based bacterial identification As much as I love Canada I have been slowly but surely inching my way South toward new places and less artic climates I chose Duke because of the interdisciplinary and collaborative environment fostered here The opportunity to combine my research experiences in diseases and genetics led me to join David Goldstein s lab where my research will focus on how host genetics influence the progression and severity of infectious disease Outside of the lab I immerse

    of the time it harbors lots of history and incredible night markets I came to the US for my undergraduate studies at the University of Washington Seattle go Dawgs in 2008 because of the amazing opportunities and diversity here My undergraduate research experience in the Brewer Raghuraman lab and Torii lab led me to continue graduate studies and MGM is the perfect program for me because of its collaborative culture and wide variety of research In the Lew lab we study mechanisms underlying cell polarity using Saccharomyces cerevisiae which is a very tractable model organism that allows genetic manipulation and microscopy Particularly I am interested in how yeast cells direct polarized growth up a chemical gradient chemotropism During mating yeast cells sense their date or mating partner through a G protein coupled receptor GPCR mediated pathway in order to grow towards each other and eventually fuse The master regulatory Rho GTPase Cdc42p and associated polarity proteins form a patch that directs secretory vesicles for growth on the up gradient side of the cell My project aims to understand how the pheromone gradient is translated through the GPCR pathway to bias the location and movement of the patch of polarity proteins

    immune system I chose Duke University for my graduate studies not only because of the fantastic science being done here but also because everyone at the institution seemed to have a sincerely friendly disposition Since my time here at Duke I have matriculated into the lab of Dr Bryan Cullen where I am currently investigating the potential of the recently described CRISPR Cas system in interfering with viral infection and

    I was born and raised in Los Angeles and spent my undergraduate and post graduate time in sunny San Diego at UCSD I am currently in Dr Bruce Sullenger s laboratory developing novel approaches to generate HIV broad neutralizing antibodies using synthesized molecules Our lab focuses on creating alternative therapeutics to combat thrombosis coagulation inflammation and viral infections On the off chance I am not in lab you can find

    part of the McNair Scholar s Program that provided me with the opportunity to spend a summer doing research at the University of Pennsylvania in Dr Susan Ross lab studying the host molecules necessary for Junin viral entry For most of my undergrad I was a teaching assistant for Human Anatomy There I obtained an invaluable appreciation for humans as a host to disease I came t0 Duke through the Cellular and Molecular Biology umbrella program and became enthralled with host pathogenic interactions I have joined the lab of Dr Dennis Ko and will be studying human genetic variations and their effect on salmonella disease susceptibility Specifically studying the mechanism of how decreased levels of VAC14 a scaffolding protein involved in phosphoinositide metabolism is involved with increased Salmonella typhi invasion My project is being funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Outside of lab I enjoy salsa dancing watching basketball dining out and shopping When I can I try to help others either through local volunteering in the community or doing mission trips in other countries My move to North Carolina has blessed me with a whole new world that I am excited to be in the midst

    on fungal infectious diseases and how we can take advantage of the molecular aspects of the microorganism to create new drugs treatments I attended the University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez obtaining a B S in Industrial Biotechnology which provided me a broad training in chemistry biology and engineering During my undergrad I had the opportunity to engaged in research under the guidance of Dr Carlos Rios Velazquez at the Microbial Biotechnology and Bio prospecting lab My main project consisted in isolating a fungal bio prospect capable of degrading 2 4 6 trinitrotoluene TNT and used it as carbon source Also I characterized a fungus that was susceptible to a possible novel antifungal substances secreted by an actinomyces From these experiences I had working in Dr Rios Velazquez s lab I fell in love with molecular mycology and the infinite biotechnological possibilities that are still to be discovered in the fungal kingdom Now at Duke I decided to pursue my passion for molecular mycology and further understand the mechanisms of human pathogenesis in fungal related diseases For that reason I decided to join Dr Bill Steinbach s lab which focuses on the human fungal pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus At the Steinbach lab
