The CCTO welcomes Wilson Banh, our new CRCA with GI. Wilson graduated from UC Irvine with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biological Sciences. Before joining the CCTO, she transferred from Stanford Healthcare in the Patient Access Services department working as a Bedside Admissions Coordinator. While working at Stanford / CCTO, Wilson is looking forward to learning about the world of clinical research and incorporating my research experience in drug design in cancer chemotherapy. I was granted the UROP, SURP, and Allergan fellowship to conduct research on a ketoreductase of doxorubicin called DpsE. I analyzed the structure and function of DpsE through x-ray crystallography and in-site directed mutagenesis, respectively. Outside of work, Wilson’s favorite hobby is dancing and she’s a big movie buff.
