Research Technician

Performed laboratory research using immunological and molecular biology methods for three major projects, the identification of T-cell epitopes for Mycobacterium tuberculosis, typing of HLA molecules and production of HLA class II transgenic mice.

  • Ran competition assays to determine ligand/peptide binding using ELISA/ELISPOT assays for identification of T-cell epitopes for Tuberculosis. This project identified over 100 novel epitopes.
  • Utilized ICS and FACS to examine T-cell subsets for cytokine production in the characterization of the novel epitopes.
  • Assisted in typing for HLA antigens by performing Luminex-based SSO typing and PCR-based SSP typing. Prepared reagents for Next Generation Sequencing (on Illumina MiSeq) using PCR, qPCR and DNA sample quantification.
  • Assisted in production of HLA class II transgenic mice by amplifying human and mouse genomic sequences and assembling them into an expression vector.
  • Performed tissue culture of human cell lines.
