Originally from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, I graduated from Penn State University with a BS in Biology and Honors in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. I completed my undergraduate thesis with Andrea Mastro, Ph.D studying the inflammatory stress response caused by bone metastatic breast cancer cells and subsequent activation of NF-kappaB in osteoblasts. I am now an MD/PhD candidate at UVM studying the humoral response to breast cancer in the laboratory of David Krag, MD, FACS. Over the course of my project, I have gained experience with biospecimen procurement, lambda expression libraries, cDNA synthesis, and construction and panning of scFv antibody libraries. When I'm not in the lab, I enjoy running, skiing, and mountain biking. Leah Novinger
