Graduated: 2005
Characterization of Nuclear Matrix Alterations Involved in Bladder Cancer Progression

After graduation, in their own words:

Following graduation I did a post-doc at the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Pitt. Deciding that a tenure track position was not where my heart was, I started to look for positions outside of that venue. I was hired by Pitt as a grant developer for faculty in the school of Health Sciences. After a few years I was recruited to my current position as a grant developer in the Department of Radiology, and am still at Pitt. I hope continued success to everyone.
