PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

  • Postdoctoral Research Associate. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Study the function of fucosyltrasferase –IV and -VII in the atherosclerosis lesion development and thrombosis.
  • Scientist. Alnis Biosciences, Inc. Development of superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO)-cored polymer hydrogel nanoparticles, which are decorated with fluorophor and cell specific targeting molecules, intended for in vivo imaging and targeted cancer chemotherapeutic drug delivery.
  • Postdoctoral Research Associate. Duke University Department of Medicine. Characterized the intracellular pathways and gene expression profile induced by the PlA2 polymorphism of platelet integrin GPIIIa, which is a risk factor for both thromboembolic vascular disease and several cancers. Studied the function of caspase-activated DNAase (CAD/ICAD) in the maintaining genetic stability and preventing tumorigenesis.
