Hello readers, It is crazy how fast a summer internship can go!  I can’t believe my nine weeks are already done, but in such a short time I was able to learn so much.  Throughout my summer, I quickly realized how paying attention in my classes such as Biochemistry and Molecular Biology prepared me for such

Welcome back to the WFU lab! There has been a lot occurring here in the lab and I have been a little behind in getting an update out to everyone. In my last update, I had moved to the Beckman CE instrument where I was working on two different types of tests: (1) Injection Pressure

Last week was really exciting because the other interns and I got tours of the different facilities around Research Triangle Park. We spent a day at each – Duke, N.C. State, and UNC- Chapel Hill – learning about the graduate programs and seeing the different labs and projects that are taking place there. There was such a

One of my favorite laboratory duties here at YPEP is working with fMRI data and images. These images are 3D pictures of the brain that are taken by displacing hydrogen molecules. After being magnetically drawn out of place, the realigning movement of these molecules is recorded, mapping out the brain based upon the density of

Wow… things have been quite busy in the lab!  There are so many different techniques and skills that I am learning.  This past week I learned how to do “immunocy to chemistry.”  The basis on this technique is having a primary antibody tag a protein (in my case GPR109A) and then have a secondary antibody that binds
