NYU SCHOOL OF MEDICINE, LABORATORY FOR CARDIOVASCULAR RESEARCH, DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY, New York, NY Medical Student Independent Study Project (September 1997)
Mentor- Dr. Aubrey Galloway, MD and Dr. Paolo Mignatti, PhD.
Created adenoviral constructs encoding sense and antisense strands of membrane type matrix metalloprotease 1 (MT-MMP1). Constructs used to study the role of MT-MMP1 in smooth muscle cell migration through extracellular matrix and neointimal formation following endothelial injury in coronary arteries.
NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH, LABORATORY OF HOST DEFENSES,
Bethesda, MD Medical Student Summer Fellowship Program (June 1996-August 1996) Mentors- John Gallin, MD and Harry Malech, MD.
Expressed and purified the CS1 domain of Fibronectin using a baculovirus eukaryotic expression system. Purified protein used in conjunction with cytokines in stem cell cultures in order to inhibit differentiation of CD34+ cells and increase engraftment of transplanted peripheral blood progenitor cells during gene therapy transduction protocols.
NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH, LABORATORY OF HOST DEFENSES,
Bethesda, MD pre-I.R.T.A. Fellow (June 1994-June 1995)
Mentors- John Gallin, MD and Harry Malech, MD. Created retroviral construct encoding the p67phox subunit of the NADPH oxidase assembly. Through transduction of CGD patient cytokine mobilized peripheral blood hematopoeitic progenitor cells was able to show significant reconstitution of oxidase activity in oxidase deficient patient CD34+ cells through gene therapy protocols using the newly created construct.
UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI SCHOOL OF MEDICINE, GENETICS DIVISION, Miami, FL Research Associate (September 1993-May 1994)
Mentor- Dr. Fernando Arena, MD PhD.
Molecular and cytogenetic investigation of invasive and in situ ductal carcinoma in early and late onset breast cancer. Genetic pedigrees examined for the presence of genetic factors contributing to the breast cancer phenotype. Molecular analysis of tumor suppresser genes, steroid receptor genes, and oncogenes.
