Martin Mendoza started out at NIH in 1997 as a high school intern at the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) where he mapped a small portion of Chromosome 7 for the Human Genome Project and then went on to earn his Bachelor of Science in biology from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in 2002. After completing a year of post-baccalaureate research at NHGRI in the laboratory of Dr. Eric Green, Martin entered into a joint PhD program with the NIH and Johns Hopkins University where he is currently a PhD candidate. Martin joined the Khanna lab in the Summer of 2005 and his thesis research is focused on understanding the interaction between the linker protein Ezrin and its binding partner Chloride Intracellular Channel 4 (CLIC4) as a way of trying to elucidate how Ezrin enables cancer cells to better handle the stresses associated with the metastatic cascade.
