Have you taken

7.05/5.07 (Biochemistry)- Yes
7.06 (Cell Biology)- Currently Taking It
7.02 (General Biology Lab)- No
5.310 (General Chemistry Lab)- No

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

Had a UROP in Spring '07 working on biomechanics research and spent the summer during cancer drug biochemistry at Infinity Pharmaceuticals here in Boston. I just started a new UROP in the Langer Lab working on a drug delivery system for DNA vaccines.

Anything else you would like us to know?

I'm still pretty undecided on what my main interest/passion is, and am very much confused about whether to go to grad school, business school, work for a while, etc. after leaving MIT. I am very excited about this class though, and am really eager to learn more laboratory techniques and general scientific approaches. I'm sure this will be very useful in UROPs, internships, and jobs down the road.
