About Me

My name is Diana and I am a ambitious and motivated pre-medicine scientist with a broad range of skills in microbiology and biomedical research as well as bench-work type experience (since 2006). I have a strong background in microbiology and molecular biology, and worked on a variety of topics and projects, notably in human microbiome, nucleic acids and protein isolation, as well as few immunologic methods, and data analysis. I possess experience in experimental design and optimizing and am capable in writing manuscripts and standard operational protocols (SOP). I'm very meticulous in attention to details and have passion for problem solving, being able to work independently or dependently, and punctual as well as committed to achieve goals and timelines in a professional manner.

PI: Daniel Frank, PhD Human Microbiome Projects Topics: Gastroenterology, Infectious Diseases, Immunology, Nutritional Biochemistry, Micronutrients, Microbiology, Medicine, Otolaryngology, Bacteriology, Virology Investigated how interactions between commensal microorganisms, pathogens, and the mucosal immune system contribute to human health and disease. I use a variety of culture-independent metagenomic technologies to study the mechanisms by which the human host and its associated microbial communities adapt and respond to one another. Because imbalances in microbial populations (dysbioses) are associated with myriad diseases, a central focus of this work concerns how such dysbioses arise, are perpetuated, and affect immune function. Current research projects examine these issues in the context of a variety of chronic diseases, immunology, otolaryngology, micronutrients, and nutrition biochemistry. On a practical note, Dr. Frank is committed to making the resources and infrastructure required for microbiome studies readily available to the research community at UC-Denver and at-large. Trained theory and methodology to individuals entering the lab – includes graduate students, medical students, post-doctoral candidates, fellows, residents, & visiting professors on sabbatical.
