Hines-Kay, Jarrett Research Specialist

Positions

I am interested in technology innovation in the biosciences. I received an introduction to small business creation and technology innovation while working at Los Alamos National Laboratory, which gave me a good understanding of the challenges and triumphs involved in the world of technology transfer. However, to be a true innovator in the field I felt it necessary to get practical laboratory research experience. Thus I went back to school to study molecular biology. My research on the Neglected Tropical Disease, Schistosomiasis, yielded several new discoveries, which I spoke about at two national conferences in 2010 and included in a publication in 2012. My laboratory experience included learning several molecular techniques such as qPCR, microarrays and more. After graduating I took a job in the Translational Informatics Division (TiD) at UNM. I learned during my master's work that data generation is easy, its analysis and interpretation where we as scientists need to innovate. I have been working in TiD for more than a year and am really enjoying it. I have had the opportunity to work on a program we developed, CARLSBAD, which helps relate common chemical patterns to biological targets via bioactive compounds with affinities for those targets. I am looking forward to our next project(s) here in the translational informatics world.
