RESEARCH EXPERIENCE
GEORGETOWN-WASHINGTON NATIONAL EYE CENTER - June 2002-June 2005
Initiated six research projects.  The first project was a major review of the ophthalmic consequences of terrorist attacks in collaboration with Colonel William P. Madigan, MD, U.S. Army ophthalmology advisor to the Surgeon General. The second project was with Dr. Albert S. Cytryn and involved quantitating alpha-receptors on Muller’s muscle in thyroid eye disease with the help of a specialized laboratory at the University of Texas Medical School in Houston.  The third project was a case report of renal medullary carcinoma metastatic to the orbit in conjunction with Narieman A. Nik and Ahmed A. Hidayat of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology.  The fourth project involved using liquid hydroxyapatite for treating enopthalmos in anophthalmic sockets.  The final two projects were case reports detailing atypical presentations of lid malposition.

LOYOLA UNIVERSITY STRITCH SCHOOL OF MEDICINE - Spring 2000
DIVISION OF OTOLARYNGOLOGY-HEAD AND NECK SURGERY

Participated in two separate research projects under faculty guidance.  The first project was a joint undertaking between the departments of otolaryngology and radiology and investigated the utility of pre-operative imaging of oral tumors using computed tomography oral imaging studies.  The second project was a retrospective study of the learning curve in acoustic neuroma surgery that will correlate 25 separate variables in 308 patients over 12 years.  

LOYOLA UNIVERSITY STRITCH SCHOOL OF MEDICINE  - Summer 1998

DIVISION OF OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY - STRITCH SCHOOL OF MEDICINE RESEARCH FELLOW
Designed and prepared therapeutic DNA vaccine for patients with cervical cancer under the supervision of  Dr. Liang Qiao.  Packaged human papilloma virus-like particles with human co-stimulatory protein B7.2 DNA using in vitro gene transfer techniques.  Assessed vaccine integrity using western gel electrophoresis, FACS, liquid scintillation spectrometry, scanning electron microscopy, and agarose gel electrophoresis.  Evaluated vaccine efficacy using in vitro cytotoxicity assays and in vivo murine models.

MILTON S. HERSHEY MEDICAL CENTER - Summer 1996
PENN STATE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE - DIVISION OF PEDIATRIC SURGERY
Investigated the role of n-docosanol in preventing progressive burn ischemia using a rat burn model under the supervision of Dr. Thomas Krummel and Dr. H. Paul Ehrlich.  Performed relevant surgical procedures and was responsible for surgical anesthesia and post-operative care of laboratory animals.  Analyzed affected areas using laser doppler, vascular casting, and histological techniques.  Also researched the role of TGF-B1 in fetal wound healing using a null mutant murine model.  Performed  murine fetal microsurgery and prepared organ culture samples for immunohistochemical analysis.  Confirmed transgene presence in fetal mice using the polymerase chain reaction. 

HOWARD HUGHES MEDICAL INSTITUTE - Summer 1997
UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH-DEPARTMENT OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES
UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL RESEARCH FELLOW
Researched enzyme mechanisms controlling muscle-specific turnover of reporter proteins under the supervision of Dr. Lewis Jacobson.  Created and maintained genetic strains of Caenorhabditis elegans and quantified intracellular degradation products using biochemical, pharmacological, and immunohistochemical techniques.
