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.

Here are some...

CitSciMed Blitz, Rare Disease Day, and more

It's finally February which means it's time to prepare for Rare Disease Day 2018 and CitSciMedBlitz! This year's theme for Rare Disease Day continues off of last year's theme--research. According to RareDiseaseDay.org, patients are not only subjects but also proactive actors in research--and we couldn't agree more! Mark2Cure would not be where it is now without the inspiration, contributions,...

Gene Wiki Data, BioThings, Mark2Cure, & more! A review of 2017 in the Su Lab

Rather than summarize the 2017 progress on in each project in separate, project-specific posts, I’m putting it all in once post this year for one important reason–recruitment! As with any academic research group, we expect to see a number of our talented team members move on to bigger and better things. 2017 did not disappoint (well, it was disappointing to lose such talent, but...
