Trained biochemist interested in opportunities to apply and learn techniques in Biotechnology development. energetic, curious, and driven to relentlessly pursue new frontiers and challenges. Recently I was working in Dr Hughes labs Dendrin (DDN) subcellular localization project. My primary responsibility was to determine whether Mammalian Interspatial Repeats influences the subcellular localization of DDN. These are the skills that I have developed through the course of this project. This opportunity enabled me to rapidly develop new skills and anaylitical methods of thinking. Along with exposing me to new social and professional enviroments where a tactful nature that builds cohesive and effective teams is required.
