Industry Experience: 

  • Lockheed Martin MSD Inc., Bethesda, MD            

As a Bioinfomatics Specialist, Mrs. Fishman managed the NIAID High Performance Computing infrastructure and Apple Bioinformatics Workgroup Cluster (BioCluster). Mrs. Fishman was responsible for the growth of the BioCluster program. One of her main responsibilities was to educate BioCluster users on high throughput analysis and molecular modeling. Mrs. Fishman was also responsible for establishing collaborations with NIH scientists.

  • National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD                     

As a biologist Mrs. Fishman:

  • Researched lipid metabolism in genetically modified animals and isolated a new protein for facilitating lipid metabolism in insects.
  • Analyzed free fatty acids of genetically modified mice using various different organic solvent and chemical agents. Designed peptide and purified antibodies of TIP47, LSDP-1 and LSDP-2.
  • Tested the immunological response from null mice using ELISA;
  • Characterized proteins TIP47, LSDP-1/LSDP-2 by the computational method, PAT domain.
  • Verified the protein TIP47 lipid binding function using Confocol imaging, Western blotting with affinity purified antibodies, and HeLa cell transfection.
  • Confirmed the LSDP-1/LSDP-2 lipid binding function by an over expression study of fat bodies targeting Drosophila melanogaster.
  • Eli Lilly, Indianapolis, Indiana                 
    As a research associate Mrs. Fishman conducted behavioral studies of muscarinic receptor knockout mice with experimental drugs and helped develop an antibody purification protocol for purification of various muscarinic receptors. Mrs. Fishman also conducted ligand binding studies with COS-7 cells that were transfected with different muscarinic binding receptor DNA constructs.
