===Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience===
I've worked at the MaRS research institute in Toronto in the department of stem cell research and developmental biology working mainly with bacterial cloning and protein purification. I did a UROP in Dr. Bhatia's HST regenerative medecine lab working on a tissue engineering project with hepatocytes. For the past 9 months or so I've worked in Dr. Guarente's lab studying sirtuins in C. elegans to research ageing.
