Director, Confocal Imaging Core
Associate Professor, UC Department of Pediatrics
I chose to become a researcher because of my passion for discovery and innovation. My research interests include developmental biology, germ layer formation, cell signaling, microscopy, immunology, lung biology and digestive disease. I began my work at Cincinnati Children’s in 2000 and have more than 30 years of research experience. I received the Senior Faculty Service award in 2020 from Cincinnati Children’s.
In my early career, I focused on embryonic development and cell-cell signaling. I now facilitate the use of microscopy and advanced imaging for other researchers in the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation in the Confocal Imaging Core (CIC). This type of advanced imaging provides a high resolution that allows microscopic visualization down to the subcellular level. In addition to imaging, we have developed tools for analysis and methodologies for image interpretation for quantitative analysis.
My work has been published in various publications, including Nature, Cell Stem Cell, Developmental Cell, Nature Cell Biology, Clinical Cytometry, Genes and Brain Behavior and Hepatology.
