Research Area:  Role of scavenger receptor CD36 in vascular pathobiology

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point in 2012 with a major in Biology. I was accepted to MCW’s Interdisciplinary program in Biomedical Research and while rotating in Dr. Roy L. Silverstein’s Lab, I became interested in the cell biology of platelets. Dr. Silverstein’s lab studies the mechanisms of a membrane scavenger receptor known as CD36 in thrombosis, atherosclerosis, and angiogenesis. I am interested in understanding how platelet CD36 interacts with receptors of the innate immune system to modulate platelet response. Using human samples and genetically modified murine models, I hope to understand the role CD36 plays in thrombus formation in the setting of inflammation, oxidative stress, and hyperlipidemia.
