    Collapse overview
    I am excited to return to Wake Forest University, where I earned degrees in biology and chemistry before completing a PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology at Princeton University. I served as an Army officer for eight years after graduate school, including a tour in Iraq. I accepted a DoD Principal Investigator position in 2010, and for ten years ran a large research program to develop countermeasures for highly dangerous biological and chemical poisons affecting the central and peripheral nervous systems as well as the cornea of the eye. I am excited to translate my DoD research experience to WFIRM, where I will (1) use fundamental studies to understand toxic mechanisms of diverse poisons at scales ranging from individual receptors to multi-organ physiological responses; (2) develop comprehensive therapies that mitigate toxicity and promote regeneration; and (3) exploit WFIRM's unique capabilities to develop organoid models of complex diseases and toxic injuries.

    My research priorities are:
    1. Investigate molecular, cellular and functional mechanisms underlying toxicity and regeneration, with the goal of applying new knowledge to treat and cure human disease
    2. Expand scientific knowledge through creativity, excellence and rigor
    3. Advance the next generation of scientists.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
