CollapseAccomplishments

Highlights:

I earned a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research focused on the role of a protein family in stem cell differentiation and led to six peer-reviewed research publications. After the completion of my doctorate, I was awarded a AAAS Congressional Fellowship and accepted a position working for the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. There, I managed a portfolio of issues that included pandemic flu preparedness, NIH funding, stem cell research, and biotechnology relations. In addition, I helped author and negotiate the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act of 2006.
