Research Interests

Areas of interest include molecular biology assays as well as bioluminescent imaging. Working with collaborators to implement imaging strategies and analyzing data are important aspects of our research. Animal handling including tail vein injections, gavage, dissection, surgery, breeding, and imaging are included in some of the projects. Cloning and sequencing plasmids can be included for projects as well.
