Research Focus

Transcriptional regulators of BRCA1

 

I received my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry at the University of Kansas in 2004. My interest in medicine stems from as far back as I can remember while my passion for research began while working in Dr. Craig Lunte's lab on the pharmacokinetics of diphenhydramine (Benadryl). Currently, my research involves developing a morphological assay to be utilized in a high throughput screen for transcriptional regulators of the breast cancer susceptibility gene 1 (BRCA1). The MD/PhD program has given me the opportunity to pursue both avenues, to develop the skills necessary to facilitate the transition from basic science to its applications in clinical medicine. Apart from studying, I am involved in the Student Governing Council (treasurer), Asian-American Medical Students Association (treasurer), and YouthFriends eMentors (starting my second year in October; mentoring a high school senior via e-mail). I also enjoy reading, going out with friends for dinner/movie or having fun and traveling.
