Prior to joining ORC in 2015, Lisa was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Her research interest has covered cancer pharmacology, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology and neurodevelopment. Besides research, she was also actively engaged in teaching and mentoring graduate and medical students. Before that, Lisa was a postdoctoral fellow in the department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard University. She generated a genetically modified mouse model which is crucial for studying neuron migration during brain development and revealing the molecular mechanism of cardiotoxicity associated with doxorubicin-based chemotherapy. Lisa holds a B.S. degree in Biochemistry from California State University, Northridge, and a Ph.D. degree in Pharmacology from Rutgers University and UMDNJ (now part of Rutgers). She is also a USPTO-registered patent agent.
