Research Interests

I study mechanisms regulating cell death in retinal degenerative diseases in Dr. Barry Knox's lab. I use animal models and mammalian cell lines to investigate how specific genes may contribute to the fate of retinal cells, specifically photoreceptor cells, in retinal degeneration.

Dr. Arthur Kornberg (a Nobel prize winner in medicine in 1959) once said, "basic research is the lifeline of medicine." And if I could extend his comment, I would add, "and publication is the lifeline of medical research." I think publishing one's work serves two important roles. The first is to communicate your work to the larger scientific community, and the second is to serve as a landmark for the completion of one aspect of your work, thus providing direction for the future scientific work. As a future physician scientist here at Upstate, I have numerous opportunities to get involved in activities and trainings to improve our skills needed for publications.
