A. Personal Statement
I graduated from the University of Florida’s Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Sciences in 2009 with a
Ph.D. in Molecular Cell Biology, focused on stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. This work was
completed in the laboratory of Dr. Bryon Petersen, through the department of Pathology, Immunology, and
Laboratory Medicine. During this time I was awarded a T32 Training Grant in Regenerative Medicine, which
allowed me to further develop and hone the molecular biology skills I had learned early in my graduate
school career and led to my dissertation work on the Notch signaling pathway and its relevance to liver stem
cells and regeneration. Upon graduation, I went on to a post-doctoral fellowship in the lab of Dr. Chen Liu in
the Department of Medicine, investigating the link between stem cells and cancer via the analysis of
microRNAs known to be involved in hepatocellular carcinoma. This research was also accomplished via
another T32 training grant, this time in Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
As part of my fellowship at CPET, I have coordinated content-rich professional development programs for
secondary science teachers. I have led many students in biomedically-relevant lab experiments on the
University of Florida campus, as well as visiting classrooms to lead or assist in the instruction of molecular
biology lessons. I am also an adjunct-professor at Santa Fe College, teaching Foundations of Chemistry
and Anatomy and Physiology in the Sciences for Health division. As a teacher I strive to engage, challenge,
and inspire growth in my students. It is my belief that every student is capable of tasting the passion that I
feel for science, they simply need the door to be open for them to experience it - science is best learned by
immersion in the context of real-life applications such as health and technology.
