Biochemistry and Molecular BiologySupervisor: Ann Kimble-Hill (lab)
- Internship Location:
- Dress Code:
- Lab attire
- Majors Preferred:
Biology, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry
- Hours per week:
- Flexible within regular work hours
- My work is focused on understanding the interface between cellular membranes and membrane proteins in initiating tumorigenesis. Our laboratory has focused on understanding the role of Angiomotin membrane recognition and selection as a mechanism for regulating cellular polarity, growth, and proliferation. Students have worked on projects that varied from site-directed mutagenesis of cDNA, protein purification and testing for changes to native function, and lipid dynamics.
- Internship Duties:
- Students in this lab perform all of their own experiments and analysis. Students may have to do literature searches to optimize experiments before performing them.
- General chemistry and biology are required. Biochemistry, analytical chemistry, bacterial cell culture experience, and mammalian cell culture experience preferred.
