I work in the Lodish Lab at MIT, in the Whitehead. I research the role of ADAMs and their substrates in extracellular protein cleavage, based on a screen of different stresses in human Jurkat and mouse Baf3 cells.

Have you taken

I have taken 5.07. I have not taken 7.06, and do not plan to take 7.02 or 5.310 (most likely, as I am not at this time planning to be pre-med)

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

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

Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

For three years, I worked at NIH, in the NICHD. I took part in the research being conducted in the lab of Dr. Brant Weinstein, working with vascular morphogenesis in embryonic zebrafish. Currently, I work with Dr. Andreas Herrlich in the Lodish lab at the Whitehead. We are performing a large-scale high-throughput screen to test the effects a set of shRNAs designed to knock-down most human kinases and phophatases has on ectodomain cleavage. Specifically, we use osmotic stress as a cleavage stimulus to the EGF ligand TGF-alpha. We work in human Jurkat cells, and mouse Baf3 cell lines.

Anything else you would like us to know?

I am familiar with lab environments and tissue culture set-up and usage. I am a very active person, and tend to dance often, and sing or hum without realizing it. If it causes others around me to get annoyed, please make me aware of what I'm doing and ask me to stop!
