I joined Dr. Schmidt’s lab at Columbia University Medical Center in 2005. In July 2010, I moved with other members of my lab to NYU Langone Medical Center.
As a Senior Research Technician for the Diabetes Research Program, my primary responsibilities include the management of mouse colonies. I’ve always enjoyed working with small and large animals; my priority has always been their health and humane treatment. I hope my work will bring new opportunities to find therapies in the different projects our lab conducts.
