Neuroimmunological modulation in Psychiatric disorders, Bioinformatics and Systems Biology, Urban Ecology

Bio

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences and Psychology from Rutgers University-New Brunswick. As an undergraduate researcher, I performed physiological ecology field and lab studies on the Eastern Fence Lizard (Sceloporus undulatus). I performed research in Psychology on the early diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease in a Rat model using pharmacological means.

I received my Ph.D. from Cornell University-Weill Medical College in New York City where I performed research in Molecular Neurosciences in the Department of Pharmacology. I subsequently joined the Department of Neurology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine as a Postdoctoral fellow where I took part in Systems Biology, Bioinformatics and Viral Immunology research.

I collaborated at Mount Sinai in the Department of Psychiatry as an Adjunct Assistant Professor where I continued my studies on the Immune modulation of the Nervous system in Psychiatric diseases.

My research projects at City Tech involve collaborations between members of the Biology, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Engineering Technology. These studies focus on Urban Ecology and examine the interface of human populations and their effects on the local flora and fauna. This research particularly focuses on the invasive rodent pest species that are so abundant in our city.

My Clubs

Minority Association of Pre-Medical & Pre-Health Students (M.A.P.S.) Club

Minority Association of Pre-Medical & Pre-Health Students (M.A.P.S.) Club

What is MAPS? -The Minority Association of Pre-Health Students that provides a network of pre-med and pre-health students and chapters nationwide. What is the purpose of MAPS? -To provide underrepresented pre-mhealth students with knowledge, skills, and experience that are both prerequisite and concomitant to professional participation in health care fields. -To improve minority matriculation into all professional health related programs, with an emphasis on medicine. -To foster support and serve as a resource for current and future students interested in health care. For more information about the SNMA or becoming a MAPS member, please contact MAPS club officials by sending an email that includes your name and a contact number to CITYTECHMAPS@SNMA.ORG You may also contact club advisor Dr. Seto at Jseto@citytech.cuny.edu.
