Clinical Research Laboratory

Consolidated Laboratory Services

My undergraduate introduction to biology prompted me to join a clinical research laboratory, where I met my first scientific mentor, Dr. Sonny Gunawan, a chemist who analyzed therapeutic treatments for HIV. Under his tutelage, Dr. Gunawan taught me chemical extraction methods, mass spectrometry analysis and even allowed me to develop clinical assays assessing therapeutic drug levels in human serum. Dr. Gunawan encouraged me to advance my scientific training and I soon applied to graduate school.
