Research

Increasing involvement in training and educational programs has steered my activities away from active laboratory work. Instead my efforts have focused on expanding the training opportunities for underrepresented students to pursue careers in biomedical research. The training program, Maximizing Access to Research Careers, is supported by an NIH training grant and offers students two full years of support, opportunities to participate in intramural and extramural research, attend scientific conferences, meet with scientists from other institutions and receive mentoring and guidance.
