Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience
I worked for the 2013 summer researching Dictyostelium at Colorado Mesa University using it as a model organism to detect drugs with potential as chemotherapeutics and treating developmental diseases.
Since January 2014, I have been working in the Weiss Lab developing a B-Cell Receptor based biosensor that can detect arbitrary macromolecules. It has potential applications in environmental sensing and rapid disease diagnostics.
Anything else you would like us to know related to 20.109?
- Large nitrile gloves please
- Also I am dyslexic and ordinarily get extended exam time. However I don't see this being an issue because there are no large tests in this class.
