My name is Joshua Welsh and I’m a postdoctoral research scientist currently conducting research in Jennifer Jones’ lab within the ‘Laboratory of Pathology‘ at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland.
My main research interest is on small lipid spheres released from cells, called extracellular vesicles (EVs). These small spheres contain proteins and genetic information from the cell they were released from. To date, I have investigated novel ways to detect and analyse EVs as well as their use as markers to diagnose and track the progression of disease. My current research focuses on utilizing EVs as a method for cancer diagnosis and predicting treatment prognosis..
Here you can find information on my research, interests, learning resources for analysis equipment, as well as links and information on software I have written.
Please feel free to contact me by email if you have any questions.
