What are your research interests?

My project is looking to identify factors expressed in a patient's tumor that contribute to successful therapy. We are taking these observations made in patients back to the lab and working with patient-derived xenografts that reflect what we observe in patients.

Why did you choose Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences' Virology and Gene Therapy track?

I came to Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences because I was interested in the research in the Virology and Gene Therapy track. There is a wide range of research within the track, and it offers multiple areas for me to explore.
