I am working as Research technician in Dr. Chiosis’ lab at Memorial Sloan Kettering cancer center. As a technician, I am assisting the post-doctoral scholars in numerous activities and experiments which include performing biochemical tests, tissue culture-based analyses, ex vivo analyses on and immunohistochemical staining of specimens. I am overseeing the maintenance of a transgenic mouse colony and performing drug administration to mice. Also, I am responsible for proper operation of the laboratory, such as contacting vendors and instrument maintenance engineers, maintaining a sterile tissue culture, preparing buffers and reagents and keeping an up-to-date inventory of chemicals and reagents.
