About Me

 
Love science and research? I do! I’m an extremely enthusiastic researcher with a Ph.D. from the Cell and Molecular Biology program offered jointly from SDSU and UCSD. My dissertation research was on viral persistence in the stem cells of the central nervous system. I enjoy engaging in cross-functional, multi-disciplinary, collaborative team endeavors. I am meticulous in organizing and documenting my research findings and have created customized databases for improved knowledge management. I also enjoy coding/programming and building computers on the side, and have created/managed web sites and databases for academic life science laboratories. I hope to help facilitate the Su Lab’s collaborative efforts.

Celebrating the application of citizen science towards biomedical literature

Upcoming event — Med Lit Blitz! Extracting information from biomedical literature is a huge problem that many researchers are trying to solve computationally. Mark2Cure approaches the biomedical literature problem with citizen science in hopes of enhancing computational methods. Happily, we are no longer alone in this regard! In fact, a year after Mark2Cure officially launched, another citizen...

New Entity Recognition Mission Available

Pilocarpine is a drug that was frequently identified by our Mark2Cure citizen scientists and volunteers in the previous sets of biomedical literature. It was often found in the context of seizures or tears—both of which are symptoms associated with NGLY1 deficiency. In humans, pilocarpine is used to pre-operatively treat some forms of glaucoma, and to treat the dry eyes associated with Sjögren's...

Happy St. Patty’s day!

Current progress in Mark2Cure Thanks to our wonderful community of citizen scientists and volunteers, the NFE2L1 entity recognition mission is now 99% complete! If you haven’t already completed quests in this mission, please help us finish it! The other entity recognition missions are also over two thirds complete and are in need of your reading skills. If entity recognition is too easy, please...

Upcoming Mark2Cure-related events

In September of 2015, the Citizen Science Association, announced the organization of a National Citizen Science Day which was scheduled for April 16, 2016. Unfortunately, the announcement went unnoticed by many San Diego citizen science project groups, and we were able to (just barely) assemble a San Diego Citizen Science Day Expo in time for the event. To avoid the last-minute planning of our...
