Most of the lab members have individual projects that relate to studying the mechanisms of cardiovascular development in a zebrafish model system. We nurture a supportive environment where each lab member is encouraged to work and think independently while receiving adequate mentoring and supervision. It is a friendly and collegial place where in addition to regular lab meetings and seminars, we also have fun parties and outings.
Systems Biology Graduate Student
Michael studies functional redundancy between vascular-specific transcription
factors and their potential role in supporting tumor vascularization. He
received his BA in Microbiology from Miami University and his MS in molecular
biology from the University of Cincinnati.
Graduated Magna Cum Laude Samford University
in Birmingham, Alabama; Medical degree from Kansas City University of Medicine
& Biosciences in Kansas City, Missouri; Currently a third year clinical
fellow in pediatric Hematology/Oncology/BMT at Cincinnati Children’s
Hospital. She pursues her research
interest: Lymphatics by studying animal models of lymphangiogenesis and
vascular tumors. Her goal is to identify
genetic targets for drug therapy that will treat rare vascular tumors and
metastatic disease for which currently there is no cure. She joins CCHMC faculty in July 2013. For fun she might be sailing a boat, exploring
a foreign city, trekking a mountain, or checking out the local fare in newly
