My primary interests include adorable mice and dangerous chemicals.
With lab focus on research and elucidation of the mechanism of the myostatin pathway and its regulation, I analyze mice and tissue samples using experimental techniques such as Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry, Time-Domain Nuclear Magnet Resonance and Transmission Electron Microscopy. I am proficient at dissection for muscle and bone collection for weights and sectioning, along with other analytical techniques. I manage our mouse colony, which currently contains about 140 lines. I prepare and coordinate mice for experiments as well as actively maintaining approximately 30 lines, creating new lines as required. As Lab Manager, my duties include management of lab members and the experiments we work on, administrative tasks such as ordering and monitoring allocations of funds, and ensuring our labs and members meet any and all criteria for safe operations.
