I am Course 20 and work in the Lauffenburger Lab at MIT. I learned about OpenWetWare from the Undergraduate BE Board wiki, and from 20.109(S08).

Originally I'm from [Big Rapids, Michigan] and am very happy to be in Boston. I play oboe in the MIT Wind Ensemble, and am stoked that an oboe was featured in a [superbowl commercial] this year. I also volunteer at MIT [blood drives] because my iron level is too low to donate. Golfing, dancing, and baking are pretty high on my priority list.

Have you taken

7.05/5.07 (Biochemistry)
7.06 (Cell Biology)
7.02 (General Biology Lab)
5.310 (General Chemistry Lab)
Have you taken any of these classes?

  • Currently taking 7.05.

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

With Lauffenburger Lab I have done:

  • Western Blots
  • Cell culture (fluid suspension, not petri dish)
  • ELISAs
  • BCA Analyses
  • Flow Cytometry experiments with Flowjo analyses.

Anything else you would like us to know?

My UROP grad student is looking into RT-PCR and other aspects of this class, so I'm excited to parallel my work with 20.109. I'm stoked to learn more BE stuff.
