Biography

Research Interests:
Our lab studies normal tissue injury as a result of ionizing irradiation. We are interested in the radiobiological responses in tumor cells and normal cells, the radiation-induced inflammatory responses as it relates to acute radiation injury and the development of radiation fibrosis, and the radioprotection of normal tissues by natural compounds during radiotherapy. My project is focused on the mechanisms of isoflavones to mediate radiation-induced normal tissue injury and the inflammatory response in thoracic organs, particularly the esophagus and lungs.

Mentor:
Gilda Gali Hillman, Ph.D.
