Shared Resource Co-Director, Experimental Mouse
Director, GEMM

Molecular biology has always been my passion and strength, and launching my current position with the Genetically Engineered Mouse Models Core back in 2007 gave me the opportunity to truly develop my molecular genetics skills and also to work in a very relevant for the medical research field. I believe, I am well qualified to provide state-of-the-art mouse gene modeling to current and potential core customers, offering them designs on nearly any type of genetic modification desired, using all possible genetic engineering techniques: transgenesis, gene targeting and the latest cutting-edge system of CRISPR/Cas9.

Cancer Focus

Since its inception in 2007, 20% of the GEMM Core’s work has been done for Cancer Center members in conjunction with the EMSR’s Mouse Production Unit, with 5 of the Core’s 22 new mouse strains, created for them just last year. We successfully interface with Cancer Center members, offering the best approach designs for their models and producing competently and efficiently made gene-modified mice, as well as helping with advice and troubleshooting on genotyping and colony breeding problems.
