Dominique earned her Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biology at the University of Nevada in 2010, where she studied the role of viral and cellular proteins in Human Cytomegalovirus DNA replication. She then pursued her postdoctoral training at the University of Utah, where she investigated the role of microRNAs in hematopoietic cell development and cancer. Using molecular biology and mouse models as tools to study human diseases, Dominique has extensive experience in the areas of infectious disease and cancer immunology. As a Technical Information Scientist at JAX, Dominique is involved in the development of scientific content and educational outreach within the scientific community.
