Biography

Research

I work collaboratively with Channelopathy and Muscle Study Project Unit faculty to design clinical treatment trials in rare neuromuscular diseases and to write grant applications to NIH, FDA, and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. I serve as co-investigator on funded projects, making suggestions for recruitment techniques and needed design modifications while the trial is in progress, and co-write manuscripts based on trial results. I assist in the T32 program, Experimental Therapeutics in Neurological Disease.
