"My PhD research focused on the neuroscience and pharmacology of stroke and dementia. I continued post-doc training under Dr. Robert Friedland at CWRU, who is well known for his work on genetic risk factors in AD. He is my mentor and a good friend as well. With his help, I was able to continue my research in biomarkers for AD during my PGY4 year. This has helped me to develop a career as a physician scientist."
