Adjunct Faculty, Laboratory of Bacterial Pathogenesis and Immunology, The Rockefeller University, NY (1999-2004)
Postdoctoral Associate, Laboratory of Bacterial Pathogenesis and Immunology, The Rockefeller University, NY (1995-1999)
Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY (1994-1995)
I have trained 6 postdoctoral fellows, 12 graduate students and >10 undergraduate researchers. Some of these individuals (e.g., Salil Ghosh, Sherry Supernavage. Jie Zhang, Robert Suriano, Supriya Rane, Mary Philogene, Abdul AlZaharani, Nisha Ganesh, et al.) earned authorships in first-rate international publications. Nisha Ganesh had earned the prestigious Howard Hughes fellowship for her undergraduate work with me. Mary Philogene had earned NIH graduate fellowship for her work with me and Ravi Ganesh had earned NIH undergraduate fellowship for his work in my laboratory. Robert Suriano has recently been awarded Graduate Researcher Award (given to the best graduate researcher each year at NYMC).
