Abstract 795. Entinostat restores responsiveness to Olaparib in ID8, TP53, and ID8, TP53, BRCA2 mouse ovarian cancer cell lines. 

What are your long-term goals? 

During ob/gyn residency, it became obvious to me that transformative change in the health care system begins with research, and I became interested in cancer care delivery systems and implementation strategies to reduce disparities. Given my interests in racial and geographical disparities in gynecologic-related malignancies, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to further this line of research and design interventions to achieve equity in gyn-related cancer outcomes. 

Please share information about how the pandemic has impacted your research over the last two years. 

The pandemic has further illuminated disparities experienced along racial and geographical lines. I have focused my research on prolonging survivorship through translational research. In some ways, the pandemic has further distanced the availability of care to our most vulnerable populations. Therefore, finding solutions for prolonging survivorship in an era where access to timely care may be limited is of extreme importance.
