Medical Students

Luis Sabage

Luis joined the lab in 2022 as a visiting student researcher from Brazil. He is a medical student from The University of São Paulo, Bauru and is  interested in ophthalmic clinical research with an emphasis in viral detection in tear samples.

Angela Li B.S.

Angela Li was a medical student at Stanford University. She joined the lab in 2018 and applied bioinformatic tools to characterize genetic eye diseases. She is interested in functional genomics and proteomics, translational bioinformatics, precision medicine, and diseases of the eye. She is currently an ophthalmology resident at Duke Univeristy and continues to work on proteotype-phenotype relationships in genetic eye disease.

Benjamin Ng B.A.

Benjamin received his B.A. from the University of Cambridge in 2016. He is in medical school at Christ Church, University of Oxford and plans to graduate in 2019. He received a competitive grant from the Oxford University Clinical Academic Graduate School to help fund a medical elective in Dr. Mahajan's lab where he researches the proteomics of wet age-related macular degeneration.

Ditte Kamille Rasmussen B.S.

Ditte joined the lab in 2022 as a visiting student researcher from Denmark. She received her bachelor's degree in medicine from Aarhus University in 2020 and is currently working towards her master's degree. Ditte's research interests include genetic diseases of the retina. Her current work focuses on genetic components of age-related macular degeneration. 

Jennifer Vu

Jen joined the lab in 2019 as a student researcher and is now a Life Science Research Professional. She earned her B.S. in Human Biology in 2021 and completed an undergraduate honors thesis in the lab researching macular holes. Her research focus is on the translational proteomics of ocular diseases using vitreous fluid and tear film.
