I am working as Director of Penn State Hershey Genome Sciences Facility (http://med.psu.edu/core/genomics, http://med.psu.edu/core/informatics) and Institute for Personalized Medicine (http://www2.med.psu.edu/ipm/) as well as Assistant Professor of Pharmacology at Penn State College of Medicine. The facility provides a range of genetic, epigenetic, and transcriptomic technologies to researchers from throughout the Penn State University. In addition to overseeing day-to-day operation of the facility, I am collaborating with a wide variety of biomedical researchers to aid in successful completion of their research projects. Moreover, there are University-wide efforts in genomics and personalized medicine, and opportunities for collaboration include research activities within various Penn State Institutes, such as the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, Cancer Institute, Heart and Vascular Institute, and Huck Institute of the Life Sciences, and I am playing an essential role to promote application of genomics research in medical science and to stimulate translational and clinical research into personalized health care.
