(555) 432-1000,
Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA 94105
Professional Summary
Undergraduate student and research biologist practiced in immunohistochemistal techniques, confocal microscopy, molecular biology and genetics, as well as science communication and instruction. Future plans include a developmental neurobiology senior thesis topic concerned with the identification of molecular markers that may sub-classify Dbx1-derived cells in the rhythmogenic core of the inspiratory central pattern generator for breathing. This may be accomplished after becoming well-versed in the questions and techniques that characterize developmental neurobiology.

Dr. Mark Forsyth’s lab focuses on the mechanisms through which bacterial pathogens cause disease. The model organism for his research is the cancer- and ulcer-causing bacteria, H. pylori. I manipulated a unique sequence on a gene in H. pylori which responds to changes in pH. I used molecular genetic techniques such as plasmid preparation, DNA isolation, plasmid transformation, bacterial transfection, and qRT-PCR.

Dr. Christopher A. Del Negro - Undergraduate Researcher
City, STATE, 01/2015 - Current

Dr. Christopher Del Negro's lab researches the neural origins of breathing. Specifically, this lab is interested in the interneurons and glia whose precursors express the homeobox transcription factor Dbx1, which putatively drive inspiratory rhythm and breathing movements. At this point I regularly perform immunohistochemistry and confocal microscopy. I have been working on a project to quantify Dbx1-derived neurons and glia in the respiratory core oscillator, dubbed the preBötzinger complex, in the medulla of Dbx1-reporter mice. Future directions include an exploration of molecular markers that may help sub-classify Dbx1-derived cells and thus identify, more specifically, the cellular rhythmogenic core.
