RESEARCH PROJECTS

8/04-2/06
Boston University, Division of Cardiology
Whitaker Cardiovascular Institute, Boston, MA
Research Assistant - PI: Douglas Sawyer, MD, PhD

  • Investigated the signal transduction pathway and role of neuregulin in doxycycline induced cardiomyopathy.
  • Investigated the protective effects of exercise on neuregulin translation/transcription in a murine model with breast cancer.

9/02-8/03
New York Medical College, Division of Cardiology, Valhalla, NY
Research Assistant - PI: William Frishman, MD

  • Investigated elastinolytic matrix metalloproteinases, MMP-2 and MMP-9, in atherosclerotic plaque instability.

6/97-8/99
Brown University, Department of Medicine/ Providence VA Medical Center, Providence, RI
Research Assistant - PI: Sharon Rounds, MD.

  • Investigated the signal transduction pathway of adenosine+/- homocysteine induced apoptosis in human pulmonary artery endothelial cells (HPAEC).
  • Investigated the effects of extracellular nucleotides on leukocyte adherence to HPAEC and human bronchial epithelial cells (HBEC) and the possible role of mucin 1.

8/96-5/97
Villanova University, Department of Biology, Villanova, PA
Research Assistant - PI: John Olson, Ph.D.

  • Investigated metabolic enzymes (CS, PK, HOAD) as indicators of activity in thermogenesis.
  • Performed enzyme assays on aging tissue samples from four species of shore birds and data analysis.
  • Studied the ontogeny of thermogenesis in the Button Quail. Surgically implanted electrodes, EMG and oxygen sensors and analyzed data.
