Nada Lukkahatai




Nada Lukkahatai has a broad background in nursing, gaining years of experience as a clinical nurse and now as a nurse scientist. Her research focus is to understand the biological mechanisms in the clustering of symptoms. Having gained skills to conduct complex laboratory experiments, using innovative techniques including proteomics and genomics that she learned as a postdoctoral fellow at the Division of Intramural Research, National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), and National Institutes of Health (NIH), Dr. Lukkahatai has published manuscripts that identify genomic and proteomic markers that can be used as interventional targets for symptom management. She is currently interested in developing non-pharmacological interventions to reduce symptom burden.
