I am gay and I am a molecular biology/regulatory scientist. //
I started out as a zoologist/animal biologist before I knew I could expand my horizons to include molecular biology. A PhD in RNA biology and X chromosome-linked genes led to transgenic animal models of male infertility research, clinical trial management, and eventually regulatory review of genetically engineered animal products at the U.S. federal agency. Currently I focus on regulatory frameworks for research and development of gene drive insects, especially mosquitos that vector malaria, for a nonprofit.
