Mentoring

I'm very passionate about mentoring and teaching those that are just starting their career in science; it is one of the most rewarding things I've experienced as a scientist. During my time at Georgetown University, I have mentored 19 students; 4 undergrads, 2 medical students, 4 Ph.D. students, 2 postdocs, and 8 master students (Biochemistry and Physiology programs).

Currently, my research group is open to considering highly motivated and talented junior scientists to join the Center for Neuroregeneration at the Houston Methodist Research Institute, Houston, TX.
