  • Molecular biology



I work as a research assistant in the Meiler lab. My work focuses on protein expression purification and crystallization, involving basic molecular biology techniques and chromatography technologies, such as gene cloning, PCR, DNA and RNA extraction, polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, western blot, circular dichroism, dynamic light scattering and size exclusion chromatography. I’m now working with Dr. Clara T. Schoeder and Dr. Nina Bozhanova on projects relating to the structural and functional characterization of computationally designed protein.
