Social Media Campaigns

My Stem Cell Resolution

In 2017, I launched a social media campaign to raise awareness about the importance of funding stem cell research and accelerating the development of safe and effective stem cell treatments for patients. 

CIRM Stem Cell Champions

In 2016, we launched a Stem Cell Champion campaign to recruit patients, patient advocates, and the general public to join us in our efforts to bring approved stem cell treatments to patients faster.

It's never too early to start learning!

I wrote a book about basic stem cell biology for young kids in collaboration with children's book author and illustrator Dr. Thomai Dion.

Website Management

I managed and developed content for the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine website. Below is an example of a major project that I spearheaded to improve the function of the CIRM website.

Clinical Trials Dashboard

The CIRM Clinical Trials Dashboard is an interactive educational tool featuring information about the 40+ stem cell trials our Agency is funding. The Dashboard contains all of the essential information a scientist, patient, or member of the public needs to know about our trials.
