We will take a Doodle poll to set regular office hours for each section. We also 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 office hours? We have held office hours in the evening in the past, but day time slots are best. Sunday all day, Limited availability during the day on Tuesday. I have class until 4:30 so anytime after that would work.

Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

Worked/working in the Griffith lab with the biomaterials group. My current project involved making PEG hydrogels with RGD and fluorescein RGD that is variably clustered on 8 arm maleimides. MSCs are then seeded, fixed, stained, and imaged. As far as lab procedures, I have done Ellman's free thiol assays, fluorescein assays, gel-making, cell splitting, feeding, seeding, staining with DAPI and pholoidin, and imaging.
