I work in the Lauffenburger Lab at MIT. I learned about OpenWetWare from my current MIT Biological Engineering Lab Course, and I've joined because I want to learn more about bioengineering lab protocols, but more so about the biological/chemical mechanisms behind such processes.

Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

  • UROP in the Lauffenburger Lab: I am currently working with HCC cell lines and how microRNA expression levels in these cells have a role in regulating cell survival decisions combined with cytokine treatment. This includes, but not limited to qPCR amplification and quantification, cell culture and passaging, and plasmid design.
  • UROP in Zhang Lab: I worked on elucidating the protein structure of specific Drosophila olfactory receptors through cell-free in vitro translation protein production.

This included, but not limited to plasmid recombination, PCR amplification, and cell transformation.

Please briefly describe any previous technical communication experience you have

  • Written Communication: I have written analyses on projects, both for UROPs and for other technical projects that I've worked on in the past.
  • Oral Communication: I have presented powerpoint presentations on my findings in previous projects to my peers. I have also discussed the intricacies of my projects with my supervisor on a daily basis.
