Beatrice Golomb, MD, PhD is the director of the Golomb Research Group.  She has served as a primary care doctor for a panel of veteran patients for over 15 years.  Dr. Golomb is Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego.  She received a BS in physics (summa cum laude) from the University of Southern California.  Dr. Golomb also has an MD and PhD from UC San Diego. 

Dr. Golomb’s research interests include: the balance of treatment risks and benefits; research methods and inference from evidence; and the relation of oxidative stress and mitochondrial function to health, aging, behavior, illness, environmental and medication effects, nutrition, and bioenergetics more generally.  She is best known for her work on Gulf War Illness, statins, placebos--and chocolate.  A number of her studies have been featured in the national and international print, radio and television media, from the New York TimesWall Street Journal, and the Economist to Jon Stewarts’s The Daily Show.

Hayley Koslik

 

Hayley Koslik received her degree in Psychology from the University of California, San Diego. She joined the Golomb Research Group as an undergraduate in December 2011 and enjoyed the work so much she stayed post-graduation to work as a full-time research assistant. Previously she individually recruited, screened, and saw participants for the study of bioenergetics in Gulf War veterans, which assessed mitochondrial dysfunction in ill Gulf War veterans (compared to healthy volunteers); she later used the results to present at the UC San Diego Undergraduate Research Conference where she received special acknowledgement from the Vice Chancellor of the University. Hayley has a strong interest in counseling and wants to develop her clinical skills working with Gulf War veterans.

Alexander Fung

 

Alexander (Alex) Fung graduated from the University of California, San Diego, with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology. He started working for the Golomb Research Group in the Spring of 2015, and is currently working on the Gulf War Bioenergetics Study. He has conducted study participant visits as well as created reaction time tests which are used during Bioenergetics study visits. He hopes to use the skills he has learned from his time with The Golomb Research Group to contribute back to the community and his family in the future as a valuable member of the healthcare field as a future orthodontist.

Leeann Bui

 

Leeann Bui graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Integrative Biology. While an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, she presented her first-authored research, “Early Adversity and Resting Autonomic Nervous System Function of Mexican-American Children” at the American Psychological Association Conference. Her results supported preventative programs aimed at maternal-child interaction among impoverished Mexican-American families. In April 2017, she joined the Golomb Research Group to manage the “Mitochondrial and Nuclear Genetics in Gulf War Illness” study. She currently works with genetic testing companies, 23andMe and GeneDx, to examine how genes related to chemical detoxification of Gulf War exposures in veterans may contribute to the development of Gulf War illness. Leeann aspires to be a clinician investigator who will serve her patients and community through individualized patient care and innovative, public health research.

Emily Nguyen

Emily Nguyen is a fourth year undergraduate majoring in Human Biology and minoring in Psychology at the University of California, San Diego. She joined the Golomb Research Group in July 2017, and is currently coordinating the Genetic Factors in Electrosensitivity study. This study aims to examine genetic predictors for vulnerability to sensitivity associated with electromagnetic radiation exposure by focusing on polymorphisms in genes involved in oxidative stress detoxification, catecholamine response and melatonin production. Emily hopes to leave a lasting, positive impact in people’s lives as she aspires to treat patients with utmost care as a future primary care physician.
