What gained your interest in the NIH?
I was attracted to the NIH because of the immeasurable opportunities and collaborations one can encounter in the intramural program to grow and develop as an independent scientist. I had an opportunity to learn first hand of these opportunities when I came as a NINR Summer Genetic Institute Fellow during my PhD program and then I had another opportunity to return for the Summer Internship Program. Now, I have returned once more as a Postdoctoral Fellow. NIH truly provides a nurturing environment for all scientist.
What kind of work do you do at the NIH?
I am a Clinical and Translational Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Institute of Nursing Research in the Digestive Disorders Unit /Biobehavioral Branch. My research interests focuses on genetics, obesity, symptom management and gastrointestinal disorders as well as biostatistics methods for genetic analysis.
