Danielle Whitham

Ph.D. Candidate in Chemistry and Biochemistry, Clarkson University

Danielle is a current graduate student in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Clarkson University working towards a Ph.D in Chemistry. She received a bachelors of science in Chemistry in 2020 from Clarkson University as well. Her research is centered around identification of a protein biomarker for breast cancer detection using proteomics and mass spectrometry. She works with breast milk and blood serum as the main bodily fluids to identify proteins dysregulated between women with breast cancer and women without. Her goal is to identify proteins which are implicated in breast cancer and can be used as a biomarker so women of all ages can be screened for breast cancer development.
