The focus throughout my research career has been in the identification and validation of genetic and epigenetic mechanisms involved in variable drug response and disease susceptibility. I received my doctoral degree in Pharmacology and Toxicology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in 2009. My post-doctoral fellowship research at Mayo Clinic, Rochester MN, focused on identifying and characterizing dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase gene variants associated with severe 5-Fluorouracil toxicity. As a principal scientist within the University of Minnesota Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology department, I am responsible for the daily operations of our laboratory unit including experimental design and execution, equipment procurement and maintenance scheduling, generation of standard operating procedures, laboratory safety compliance and training, and supply and biospecimen inventory. My future research interests are in the application of modern genomic methods in the clinical setting to develop more effective molecular tests for disease prognosis and treatment prediction.
