Roxana Eggleston-Rangel received her B.S. in Biochemistry from California State University, Los Angeles in 2004. While at CSULA, Roxana performed undergraduate research in the laboratory of Dr. Alison McCurdy studying the structure of helical peptides by circular dichroism and NMR. After completing her degree, she worked as a Research Associate/Technician in the Mass Spectrometry division at the USC Center for Applied Molecular Medicine, under the direction of Jonathan Katz. At the USC CAMM, Roxana was in charge of calibrating, tuning, maintaining and troubleshooting the mass spectrometers (LTQ Orbitraps, LTQFT and Triple Quadrupole) and other related equipment while doing research on the triple quadrupole.
At the PEL, Roxana oversees the PEL's mass spectrometers and general equipment, she also helps research collaborators to use the mass spectrometers and prepare samples. Whenever her busy schedule permits, she tests new techniques and technologies to be implemented at the PEL and does research on tuberculosis mycobacterium glycopeptides.
In her spare time Roxana likes spending time with family, visiting museums and watching Harry Potter films.
