School of Podiatric Medicine
Participated in the beginning stages of a pilot study entitled “Dynamic plantar microvascular skin response to compressive loads in at-risk diabetic and healthy control;” this study aims to quantify the interaction between external stress patterns and local tissue perfusion in an effort to determine their collective role in the formation of diabetic foot ulcers. Helped to construct the Automated Laser Doppler and Force Delivery System and began preliminary tests to help formulate a precise protocol for data collection.
June 2000-April 2006: Laboratory Technician, Pathology Laboratory, Dept. Pathology,
Anatomy, and Cell Biology, Thomas Jefferson University
Served as integral part of active research laboratory studying varying characteristics of Protein Kinase C. Technical proficiency in the following techniques: radiolabeled protein assays, Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR), protein expression (SF9 insect cell lines and E.coli) and purification utilizing FPLC, cell culturing; served as lab manager coordinating ordering of all materials, maintaining lab equipment, renewal of service contracts, etc.
August 1996-May 2000: Laboratory Technician, Developmental Biology Laboratory,
Dept. of Biology, Villanova University
