Have you taken

7.05/5.07 (Biochemistry)
no 7.06 (Cell Biology)
no 7.02 (General Biology Lab)
no 5.310 (General Chemistry Lab)
no

Do you have any experience culturing cells (mammalian, yeast or microbial)?
Yes

Do you have any experience in molecular biology (electrophoresis, PCR, etc)?
Yes

Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

My first foray into lab work was doing environmental science research at the Marine Mammal Center in high school. It involved a lot of field study, taking samples, and performing chemical analyses on the blood. As a freshman at MIT, I UROP'd at MGH doing clinical research to investigate the effects of giving growth hormone treatments to former acromegaly patients. This past summer, I did an early stage research internship at Genentech, Inc. My work there focused on trying to characterize the roles of various proteins in the apoptotic pathway. I honed protein chemistry, recombinant DNA, microscopy, and other assorted lab skills. It was definitely both my most exciting and most substantial research experience to date, and I can't wait to learn more this semester!
