Here’s a live feed of Brays Bayou in Houston (one of the drainage canals) (http://goo.gl/oFuhgn) and what it’s supposed to look like (https://goo.gl/maps/JKszUKYBke22)!

Since practically everyone nowadays is avoiding gluten, whether or not they really have celiac disease, this list is fabulous in reminding what you're missing.
There are so many places to get gluten free food these days. But what about the few of us left that don’t suffer from Ce…

Because shoes that tighten themselves are a world-shaking, game-changing technology? This is a prime example of innovation for the sake of innovation.
Today Nike unveiled the HyperAdapt 1.0, its first pair of self-lacing shoes.

"Biotech nerds are not the cool kind of nerds". So true.
This is my first year at South by Southwest. I was invited to speak on a panel about cancer screening technologies. I know what you’re thinking. Zzzzzzzzz. Fine by me. I live and breathe this stuff. Biotech, to me, is never dull. But let me say, after 15 years of writing about this [...]

Primer is on Netflix. If you like mind-bending sci-fi films (think Inception on steroids), watch this. If you fully understand this movie, you also might be a genius.
Let’s get this out of the way first—if you haven’t

A few weeks ago, the Consulting Club at the Texas Medical Center, along with sister MBA clubs, held the 1st Greater Houston Consulting Case Competition. This was the first event of its kind in the Houston area and ended up being a spectacular success. It also opens the door for many more joint events between PhDs, MDs, and MBAs that are interested in a career in management consulting, and hopefully increases awareness about this career path. #consulting
The first ever Greater Houston Consulting Case Competition has come and gone with enthusiastic turnout from participants, spectators, and judges. We want to thank all of you for setting the bar ver…

Last Memorial Day, Houston suffered a thunderstorm that caused massive citywide flooding. We lost both of our cars. Unfortunately, that wasn't just a freak storm. Just woke up to rising waters and it's supposed to continue for another 7-8 hours. Luckily one of our neighbors spread the word in the middle of the night and everyone scrambled to move their cars. And this was with the flood gates enabled!

That's it. I'm buying fresh mozzarella on the drive home.
The ultimate grilled cheese sandwich, according to author Francine Prose, includes Aleppo pepper, which adds a dimension of spiciness to balance the tangy sourdough bread and the creamy mozzarella.

A man of few words. Except when thinking.
Introduction
I am a scientist with 12 years of research experience with extensive training in the fields of molecular diagnostics, immunology, and nanomedicine.

Currently as a PhD candidate at Baylor College of Medicine, I work in a lab interested in developing groundbreaking treatments for autoimmune diseases. During my dissertation research, I have defined a new direction for my lab: using bleeding-edge carbon nanoparticles to treat rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. My efforts led to the filing of a non-provisional utility patent application. 

I believe that while basic science research is pivotal for treating diseases, the strategic advancement and commercialization of novel findings play a crucial role as well. To that end, I worked as a consultant intern for Fannin Innovation Studio, a venture capital firm and life science accelerator, to gain a complete understanding of the drug development process and learn about the business aspects of science.

Previously, I worked as an R&D scientist at Canon U.S. Life Sciences, a subsidiary of Canon, Inc. As a part of an interdisciplinary team consisting of biologists, engineers, physicists and computer scientists, we built clinical genotyping assays and transitioned them onto our in-house microfluidic platform with the goal of manufacturing a medical device that would detect genetic diseases from patient samples within minutes. I was fortunate enough to be a part of the team that conducted the first field trial of the device with collaborators across the US.

In all my professional endeavors, colleagues have known me as a dedicated problem solver—I always aim to identify the core issue, work with the most crucial information, and propose a solution in the shortest time.

I am intensely passionate about my career and its growth. Using my diverse experiences from the private sector and academia, I am always looking for opportunities to attain the maximum possible significance and impact from my knowledge and contributions.
