Project Statement: Molecular mechanism behind the formation and function of EML4-ALK granules
Project Statement: In addition to working with Bryan Gibson to study the role that phase separation plays in organizing and regulating the genome, I squeeze one more person or piece of equipment into a space where no one thinks there is any room. I evaluate equipment, and repair equipment. I keep our lab manual and database up to date. I organize supplies, constructs, and people. I listen, humor, and console. As a lab manager I connect the dots needed to make things work. I do anything and everything required to maintain an efficient, well-functioning lab.
Job Description: I manage all of the insect cell cultures in the lab, from DNA to virus and protein production.
Job Description: I maintain the lab reagent stocks.
