Commented on Global Policy Webinar: Non-Medical Influences & Barriers to Access High-Quality Cancer Care Globally
Access to cancer care is influenced by a myriad of factors, many of which are deeply rooted in regional, ethnic, religious, socioeconomic, and cultural contexts. These factors often intertwine, creating barriers or facilitating access to care.

Commented on Movement Disorder Specialist Q&A
Parkinson's Disease: This is perhaps one of the most well-known movement disorders. It is characterized by symptoms such as tremors, bradykinesia (slowness of movement), rigidity, and postural instability. Parkinson's disease results from the loss of dopamine-producing cells in the brain.

Commented on Quantitative analysis of Pac1/LIS1-mediated dynein targeting: Implications for regulation of dynein activity in budding yeast
Pac1, the yeast equivalent of LIS1, plays a vital role in dynein function and nuclear migration, working with Dyn1 and Bik1 at microtubule plus ends; notably, overexpression of Pac1 boosts cortical dynein activity differently than the loss of its negative regulator, She1.
