Postdoctoral Fellow Highlight:
is a Postdoctoral Fellow for the Department of
Pediatric Nutrition. Aimee attended Washington State University, receiving her
Bachelor’s degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition in 2010 and her PhD in
Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2019.
Her graduate research was focused on post-transcriptional
regulation of UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) enzymes by microRNA. The UGTs
are a family of Phase II metabolizing enzymes responsible for the
detoxification of endogenous compounds, such as hormones and bile, as well as
exogenous compounds, such as food components, drugs and environmental
carcinogens. The goal was to identify potential biomarkers that may be useful
in assessing cancer risk or liver toxicity risk due to interindividual
variability in the expression of enzymes important in the detoxification of
carcinogens or medication, respectively.
Her current project is focused on untargeted metabolomics as
a means to identify food-specific molecular signatures of common Mediterranean
diet foods in order to identify potential biomarkers that may then be
correlated with improved health indicators. Her professional interests are
focused on personalized patient care and the philosophy of "food as
