Clinical Molecular Fellow

My postdoctoral research years at the University of Chicago were primarily focused on the study of diabetes. The main aim of my research involved the identification and study of genes responsible for monogenic and atypical forms of diabetes. This work has enabled me to acquire an extensive academic background in the field, combined with an intensive amount of practical work-experience in basic research, specifically molecular and cellular biology. In 2018 I started the Laboratory Genetics and Genomics Clinical Fellowship at the University of Chicago. This fellowship program will not only further my understanding of human genetics but will also provide me with the necessary technical and leadership skills to perform appropriate testing, and to interpret the accrued data relevant to the diagnosis and management of human genetic diseases.
