Have you taken any of these classes?
7.06 (Cell Biology)
7.02 (General Biology Lab)
5.310 (General Chemistry Lab)
I am taking 7.05 this semester.
Do you have any experience culturing cells (mammalian, yeast or microbial)?
Yes. I have expereince culturing Bone Marrow Derived Cells and hybridomas.
Do you have any experience in molecular biology (electrophoresis, PCR, etc)?
Yes. I have some experience doing gel electrophoresis.
Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience
I have been working at the Laboratory for Multiscale Regenerative Technologies for a little more than a year now.
The goal of my project is to target deliver iron oxide nanoparticles for theraputic purposes in cancer treatments.
Anything else you would like us to know?
I absolutely love working in my lab and I am really looking forward to learning a lot from this class.
