Preferred "Extra" OH Time

We will take a doodle poll to set regular office hours based upon T/R or W/F section. However, we do offer supplemental office hours before big assignments are due.

What times on Sundays (all), Mondays (T/R section), and Tuesdays (W/F section) are you available for occasional office hours? We have held office hours in the evening in the past, but day time slots are best.

Sundays between 1:00 PM and 6:00 PM. Tuesdays after 4:00 PM.

Potentially Relevant Background

Have you taken/are you taking... Answer yes/no/when
7.05/5.07 (Biochemistry) Yes, 5.07
7.06 (Cell Biology) No, Spring 2014
7.03 (Genetics) Yes
5.310 (General Chemistry Lab) No
BioSafety Training Yes

Do you have experience with... Answer yes/no/type
Cell culture (microbial/mammalian/yeast?) Yes, all
Molecular biology (electrophoresis, PCR, etc) Yes, all

Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

Langer Lab: Microfluidic Device to Isolate and Tag Circulating Tumor Cells Utilizing microfluidic delivery device to isolate circulating tumor cells in dilutions of up to 1:106 blood cells, allowing study of metastasis, the primary cause of cancer-related death Designing, conducting, and analyzing experiments for isolation by surface markers, size, and gene expression

Wirtz Lab: Image Processing and Analysis of Cancer Cell Response to Insulin Developed image processing software in MATLAB, allowing us to quantify insulin response in over 400 cells in about 80s; software led to discovery of novel subcellular trends in diabetes and cancer Analyzed Akt phosphorylation from insulin stimulus at single cell resolution, level of detail previously unreached

DNA Medicine Institute (Biotechnology Company): Construction of a Handheld Blood Diagnostic Device Constructed optics and microfluidics systems for the rHEALTH sensor—a handheld, reusable flow cytometer that measures blood cell and protein levels, allowing for critical diagnostic tests from one blood drop Utilized LabVIEW Program to collect and analyze physiological signals, test device, and improve the production-stage prototype of the rHEALTH sensor

Anything else you would like us to know related to 20.109?

For example, please let us know if you have any special glove requests, namely XS or XL size, or nitrile material -- we carry latex S/M/L by default.

Nothing in particular.

What is your favorite food or song or song about food?

Sushi or pasta.
