Research and Practice Interests

Critical Care Ultrasound

I worked in Dr. Richard Mullins' research lab at Xavier University conducting organic synthesis research and investigated a naturally occurring compound, (+)-kalkitoxin, that has shown biological activity towards certain colon cancer cell lines. I worked to develop a more efficient synthesis of a (+)-kalkitoxin derivative with greater potential for pharmaceutical development, and I performed research wiith several members of the group investigating various derivatives in order to test their biological activity and gain a greater understanding of (+)-kalkitoxin's function. My work was presented at the American Chemical Society's national convention in Chicago, Illinois. My background in chemistry proved especially useful during my pharmacological studies throughout medical school.
