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.
