Gabe is currently a graduate student in the Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology program at Stony Brook U. He joined the Tuveson in July 2022 and is working on the interaction between tumor-derived secreted proteases and the extracellular matrix and how this can regulate the conversion of a basal phenotype to a classical phenotype.
Before attending grad school, Gabe worked at the Diabetes Obesity Metabolism Institute at The Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai focusing on how glucose-responsive transcription factors can augment beta-cell proliferation while also protecting from glucolipotoxicity. He also worked for a year in the Precision Immunology Institute at Mt. Sinai on how the complement cascade can modulate cardiac cold ischemia reperfusion injury, and the infilitration of monocytes and lymphocytes into the graft.
