TEACHING ASSISTANT, VERTEBRATE DEVELOPMENT | ABCD University, Chicago, IL: 2013
Performed lectures, student presentations, and discussion sessions regarding Vertebrate Development (DVBI-35600) — covering major topics on developmental biology of embryos, including formation of the germ line, gastrulation, segmentation, nervous system development, limb patterning, and organogenesis.
- Utilized primary literature, emphasizing experimental approaches such as classical embryology, genetics, and molecular genetics.
RESEARCH TECHNICIAN | The Department of Pediatrics, ABCD University, Chicago, IL: 2008–2012
Performed experiments to collect and analyze data for publication; provided oral presentation of data at laboratory meetings as well as to the scientific community; and carried out training and lectures to laboratory members on new protocols.
- Demonstrated molecular biology techniques by interfacing with neighboring laboratories to assist with generating complex knockout constructs, along with facilitating human genomics facility in PCR equipment set-up and cloning numerous genes.
- Played an integral role in ensuring the functionality of the real-time PCR method.
- Took full accountability for mutant mouse strain, genetically screening hundreds of mice to identify mutants and ensure the propagation of mutation.
- Thoroughly trained postdoctoral scholars, students, and faculty in different techniques, such as cDNA library screening, rtPCR, and EMSA method streamlining.
