I will present relevant and concise lectures, discussions, and labs on topics in the DO and Biomedical Science programs. I will reorganize lectures to engage the students and facilitate learning by encouraging more class discussion.

I will with the help of Biomedical Science and DO work study students, use astrocytes in research to explore the potential of natural products to reduce age-associated diseases like Alzheimer and Parkinson disease.

I will aid and encourage biomedical science, medical, and pharmacy students to develop to their full potential.
