    Collapse Overview
    Currently, I am interested in clinical research in minimally invasive pediatric surgery. I am excited by the possibility of performing simple and complex laparoscopic and thoracoscopic procedure through a small incision. When this incision is placed in the umbilicus, it results a nearly scarless incision.

    Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Research Institute July 2002 – June 2004, Development Biology Program, Department of Pediatric Surgery. I studied the effect of growth factors (Fibroblast growth factor 10, Fgf10) on the development of various structures of the gastrointestinal tract. I hope to continue the work I started on intestinal atresia.

    Loyola Marymount University1993-1994, Tetrahymena thermophila genetic research project. I performed gene mapping studies of a bi-nucleated single cell protozoan with a sexual and asexual life cycle.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
