I have been active full time in biomedical research from the age of 19 onwards (having started working in labs earlier as a teenager).  It is my passion;  The potential to take something beautiful and abstract (chemistry) and use it to make something useful (e.g. a drug) seems like an ideal combination.  My first publications came from work I did as a 19-22 year old undergraduate at MIT.  These were multiple US and international patents, that focused on the development of anti-cataract medicines.  As a graduate student at UCSF, I conceived of the first biomedical application of fullerenes (clusters of carbon that were the focus of the 1996 Nobel Prize).  This work has been cited hundreds of times, and covered in the pages of multiple publications, including the Economist and the NY Times.  After postdoctoral training with Peter Dervan at Caltech, I started my independent scientific career at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, in 1999.
