My medical education, clinical training in nephrology, and previous postdoctoral research experience in hypertension, kidney disease, and molecular biology have given me an excellent background in medicine and biomedical research. As a research associate at the Department of Oncology at Georgetown University, I am working with Dr. Radoslav Goldman, a principal investigator, professor, and expert in liver, head, and neck cancers. The immediate focus of my professional goal is to successfully investigate the roles of endogenous heparan 6-O sulfatases that have recently been found to be aberrantly expressed in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and other malignancies. I will conduct these studies in various human biological samples and experimental animal models.
