MOST DMD/PhD 7 Student

Oral Biology


My love for research began in the microbiology/immunology lab. Today, I explore the dental, oral, and craniofacial effects of X-linked hypophosphatemia. My current training prepares me to become an independent clinician-scientist. As a scientist and educator, I will strive to demystify the process of discovery, so as to nurture a new generation of researchers, curious and disposed to embracing the complexity of life.

Research Currently in Progress

Project Title: Roles of the Phosphate-regulating Proteins, PHEX and DMP1, in the Dentin Matrix of XLH Patients

Mentor: Dr. Anne George
