I completed my undergraduate education at the College of William and Mary from 1998-2002 with majors of Chemistry and Molecular Cell Biology, during which time I performed molecular neural development research in the lab of Dr. Margaret Saha. I spent my summers during my undergraduate training in the multiple sclerosis lab of Dr. Tim Vartanian at Harvard Medical School studying the regulation of oligodendrocyte myelination. I then worked for two years as a research assistant at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in the lab of Dr. Erik Knudsen studying regulation of cell growth by the retinoblastoma tumor suppressor. Thereafter I completed my medical and graduate training in the MD/PhD program at Georgetown University School of Medicine from 2004-2012 with my PhD thesis research “Identification and therapeutic targeting of novel transforming pathways in human glioblastoma multiforme” performed in the lab of Dr. Todd Waldman. I then completed a two year residency in Anatomic Pathology at the University of California, San Francisco from 2012-2014, following which I have begun a Neuropathology Fellowship also at UCSF. I am very interested in the future of molecular diagnostics for cancer pathology and the prospect of personalized targeted therapeutics based on the genetic profile of individual tumor specimens.
