I have worked in three different labs. The first one I learned how to make gels and basic lab procedures; the second I learned a lot about cell culture and western blots, and currently I am doing a lot of PCR and RNA extraction/virus isolation.

Please briefly describe any previous technical communication experience you have

    • Written Communication
    • Oral Communication: Don't have any formal training, but I was part of a youth development group that focused heavily on presentations. I have also presented science projects and my research at the end of my time last summer.
