Have you taken any of these classes?

7.05/5.07 (Biochemistry)
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.
