    Collapse Overview
    Over the past several years my laboratory has been engaged in NIH-funded multidisciplinary drug/probe discovery programs by providing expertise in medicinal chemistry and drug design. Such collaborations include programs directed towards the discovery and development of candidate treatments for: (a) neurodegenerative tauopathies (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease), in collaboration with the Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases Research at University of Pennsylvania; and (b) parasitic infections, such as trypanosomiasis and schistosomiasis, in collaboration with the Center for Discovery and Innovation in Parasitic Diseases at UCSD. In addition, my laboratory has also been actively involved in the investigation of basic, fundamental principles in medicinal chemistry, such as in the area of isosteric replacements.
    I have successfully completed facilitator-led training for effective mentoring delivered by the Center for Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research (CIMER)-trained instructors and developed a mentoring philosophy for mentoring certification. I am available to serve as a career or research mentor for early career faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate students. The Health Sciences campus-wide Faculty Mentor Training Program (FMTP) initiative is sponsored by the Health Sciences Office of Faculty Affairs (OFA) with support from the Chancellor’s Office, VC-EDI and VCHS.
