Cell Biology (BIO 201) - (January 2015 - ).
Leading two three-hour lab sections.
Holding office hours once a week.
Helping students with lab procedures, grading labs and quizzes.
University at Buffalo Laboratory for Biomaterials and Regenerative TherapeuticsStudent Researcher
Currently working on determining the effects of amphiphilic block copolymers on Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cell (HUVEC) membranes and cultures.
An application of these polymers is finding a method to disperse a signal through to HUVEC aggregates, to artificially induce either vasculogenesis or angiogenesis.
The spatial and temporal control of these cells could allow multiple beneficial medical applications.
