Kam D. Dahlquist, Ph.D.
Associate Professor
Department of Biology
Loyola Marymount University
1 LMU Drive, MS8888
Los Angeles, CA 90045 

I am the head of the Dahlquist Lab at Loyola Marymount University. I learned about OpenWetWare through a Google search when I was searching for a protocol online. I've joined because I run a lab with undergraduates at a primarily undergraduate institution and would like to post my protocols and supply lists online for easy access and to share them with the community. I also host some of my courses on this site (see below).
