I first became interested in pediatric neuroscience research as an undergraduate at USC while studying biochemistry and music. Before going to graduate school, I continued working in research, first in a cancer lab and then in a developmental neurobiology lab. I combined these research interests in graduate school at OSHU, where my doctoral research focused on a particular transcription factor, which is known to be involved in numerous pediatric diseases and brain cancer, and understanding how the functions of this protein are controlled. I’m thrilled to be a part of the vibrant team at cc-TDI and to make tangible progress in the treatment of children’s cancers.
