Human stem cell technology and the potential to repair, replace and regenerate parts of the human body for better clinical outcomes. Previously I worked to reprogram patient skin cells (fibroblasts) into neurons that could help to create a therapy to halt or reverse the loss of function in MS patients. My research in the Soares lab consists of a species survey of trophoblast cells and understanding the mechanism of the Arylhydrocarbon receptor (AhR) pathway in these cells. In my free time I love to find a creative outlet in drawing and painting, work on home improvement projects with my husband, and volunteer at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir.
