May 2004 to September 2006: Research technician/Lab manager. Pharmacogenomics research support. Discover genetic polymorphisms affect the response to drugs. This includes various methods for analysis of the composition (sequence) human genetic material (DNA or RNA) and storage and retrieval of that information for analysis with clinical records of drug responses. Pharmacogenomics is the study of how an individual's genetic inheritance affects the body's response to drugs.
September 2002 to April 2004: Postdoctoral researcher, University of Florida. Adipocyte (fat cell) pharmacology research.
January 1998 to July 2001: Research technician. Used molecular techniques in research in cellular regulation of gene expression involved in mammalian development and cancer. DNA cloning, PCR, blots, protein manipulations and related techniques.
June 1994 to January 1998: Substitute teaching in public schools. Completed development of an insecticidal boric acid synergist (patent 5,667,816) which was developed and marketed. A label for the boric acid composition was approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Consulted on the health effects of drugs, pesticides, insect repellents and other chemical exposures. Wrote a review for the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs which dealt with the potentiation of the toxicity of a drug used by Persian Gulf War troops, by pesticides and other substances. Member of a research team that studied the effects of chemical risk factors related to Persian Gulf War illnesses.
July 1990 to June 1994: Research Entomologist, USDA ARS, Medical and Veterinary Entomology Research Laboratory, Gainesville, Florida.
March 1989 to June 1990: Research Entomologist, USDA ARS Subtropical Horticulture Research Laboratory, Miami, Florida.
