I did my undergraduate education at the College of William and Mary from 1998-2002, graduating with majors of Chemistry and Molecular Cell Biology. During my four years at William and Mary, I performed molecular neural development research in the lab of Dr. Margaret Saha which was the topic of my Honors thesis. I spent my summers during my undergraduate training working in the multiple sclerosis lab of Dr. Tim Vartanian at Harvard Medical School studying the regulation of oligodendrocyte myelination. After completion of my undergraduate degree, I 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. I then did my medical and graduate training in the MD/PhD program at Georgetown University School of Medicine from 2004-2012. I did my PhD in the Tumor Biology Training Program, completing my thesis research “Identification and therapeutic targeting of novel transforming pathways in human glioblastoma multiforme” in the lab of Dr. Todd Waldman. In July 2012 I started a two year residency in Anatomic Pathology at the University of California, San Francisco after which I plan to complete a Neuropathology Fellowship. 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.
