Dr. Stanculescu has a background in biopharmaceutical sciences. Her pre- and post-doctoral research focused on understanding cellular mechanisms of resistance to cancer therapy. Pathways explored included those involved in apoptosis, inflammation, and endocrine hormone signaling. The culmination of that work identified potential biomarkers as early predictors of tumor response to therapy. Her results have been published in a variety of journals and shared at national conferences. She has also researched the medicinal properties of botanicals traditionally used in the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders (published as A. Stoia). Dr. Stanculescu enjoys traveling with her family and reading scientific and biblical literature.
