Carmen received a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology from UMBC in 2001. She began working with Dr. Nicholas Katsanis at the Institute of Genetic Medicine at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore in 2002, after spending some time in industry labs as a research pharmacologist. At Hopkins, she worked on various ciliopathy projects involving mice, zebrafish, and cell culture models, and human samples.
From 2008 to 2019, Carmen worked as a lab manager and senior research technician at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, where she studied neuropathic pain for several years, then moved to endocrinology research involving zebrafish models. In late 2019, she rejoined Dr. Katsanis and Dr. Erica Davis at the Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute at Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to provide expertise in using zebrafish as a model organism.
