Where were you born?
What school did you attend?
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (S.B.), Boston University (M.S.), Brandeis University (Ph.D)
What gained you interest in the NIH?
The opportunity to work in live cell imaging within the context of a cancer cell. It gives me a unique perspective into how fundamental processes such as transcription vary from cell to cell.
What kind of work do you do at the NIH?
I work on chromosome organization, a field of intense scientific research. I try to understand how the spatial organization of chromosomes affects transcription. We are using live cell imaging to look at the transcription of endogenous genes in breast cancer cell lines.
