Scientist Solutions: International Life Science Community By Scientists For Scientists

Thanks to our sponsors who make this site possible
gsovak' Bench [how it works]
My Bench Space is your space on Scientist Solutions, with both a private area where you can keep track of your account settings and favorite postings, and a public area where you can upload your picture, customize your profile, or start a blog

My Summary
Keeps a log of the topics you've started, the replies you've made, protocols or events you've posted, etc. Your summary will show up in your public profile.

My Blogs
You can create as many blogs as you like. They'll be viewable by anyone who looks at your profile, and they will also be indexed and listed in The Forums section of Scientist Solutions

My Lab Drawer (private)
As you browse through Scientist Solutions, you may see a topic, event, job or protocol that you'd like to store so that you can find it again easily. By clicking the "Save to My Bench Space" button next to any item on our site, you will put that item in your lab drawer for future reference.
You can also add fellow scientists to your lab drawer by clicking the "Save this scientist to My Bench Space" link next to that member's name in their posts or Bench Space profiles.

My PubMed Alerts (private)
This really cool tool allows you to set up email notifications whenever and article in your area of interest (specified by keyword is published in PubMed

About My Research

Assistant Professor 2007-current
Teaching Histology at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic Collage.
Research intrest in muscular connective tissue.

Postdoctorate, 2003-2005

My Postdoctorate was done under the mentoring of Prof. Cuervo A.M., Albert Einstein Collage of Medicine, Bronx, N.Y.

In my work I used Molecular biology techniques i.e., Proteomic techniques such as 2D-PAGE to study the changes in 2D-electrophoretic patterns of different lysosomal subcompartments of rat liver under different conditions. I am also trying to identify consistent changes in those patterns with changes in chaperone mediated autophagy (CMA) activity and to identify/analyze the changing proteins by mass spectrometry procedures in aging and Alzheimer disease animal models (liver tissue and cell cultures).


Senior Postdoctorate, November 2005

Drug research in the field of Cystic Fibrosis. Study of the Heat shock chaperone CFTR complex, both W-CFTR and DF508-CFTR

My Affiliations:


Off the bench I enjoy:

Proteomics, 2D-PAGE, Immunoflourescence
