Have you taken or are you taking...

20.320 (Cell Kinetics) Yes
7.05/5.07 (Biochemistry) Yes
7.06 (Cell Biology) No (taking it this spring)
5.310 (General Chemistry Lab) No (and probably not ever)

Do you have any experience culturing cells (mammalian, yeast or microbial)? No

Do you have any experience in molecular biology (electrophoresis, PCR, etc)? Yes, I have performed ELISAs

Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

I work in a brain and cognitive science lab with rats. The experiment is optimization of fear extinction; we look at different ways we can improve the fear extinction process by using different drugs and techniques as well as examining the changes to the paradigm when the rats are put under chronic stress

Please briefly describe any previous technical communication experience you have

    • Written Communication

I wrote 3 UROP proposals that got approved (1 for credit, 2 for direct funding)

    • Oral Communication

I gave a final presentation on biomechanics of neurofilaments for 20.310 last semester

Anything else you would like us to know?

I'm colorblind.
