My work focuses on transcriptomic gene microarray analysis in the development of diseases with environmental origins. My project will integrate RFAs 1 & 3 by testing both ecological concentrations of relevant chemicals resulting in adverse vascular dysfunction and machine learning bioinformatics data of ID3 target genes, in order to model and predict adverse effects in susceptible populations. I'm interested in applying the results from my transcriptomic data using zebrafish as an animal model for exposure to relevant doses of these environmental toxicants.
