came to our laboratory in 2001 as a new graduate from the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore,
where she obtained a bachelors degree in biology. Whilst at LGP, she worked with Keiko Miyoshi in collaboration with Dolph Hatfield and Brad Carlson of NCI exmaining the role of selenocysteine tRNA in mammary gland development and differentiation.
Fanta left the lab in 2002 to pursue a DPM at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine
Philadelphia, PA. She has recently joined a practice and is currently a podiatrist in Dover, Delaware. You can reach her at email@example.com
