Professional Summary

Scientific/Grant writing experience I applied and won the NCI-CCR Director’s Innovation award in 2015 during my postdoctoral training at NIH, Bethesda, USA. It’s an intramural NIH grant writing competition designed to support development of highly innovative approaches and technology. In 2020, I published the manuscript related to the awarded grant and I am the 1st author and co-corresponding author on the manuscript (PMID: 32041821).

I have extensive scientific writing experience as I am first author on about 10 manuscripts which I wrote independently, and I have co-authored about 7 manuscripts written along with other authors.
