CO-OP OBJECTIVES
To explore career opportunities in biochemistry and microbiology. My longer- term goal
is to obtain a graduate degree in molecular biology or immunology, leading to a research
career in the health or agricultural sciences.

CO-OP WORK EXPERIENCE
University of Victoria, Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology
January - April 2011
Research Assistant.
Prepared a murine Thy-1 construct for microinjection to create transgenic mice expressing
toxic peptides implicated in British and Danish familial dementias. Screened compounds
to test for possible aggregation inhibition of beta-amyloid peptides implicated in
Alzheimer's disease. Employed numerous molecular biology techniques to create
construct for microinjection. Generated polyclonal antibodies, purified antibodies,
optimized ELISAs to screen inhibitors, measured peptide toxicity on neuroblastoma cells
with MTT and LDH assays, and presented data to a pharmaceutical company in a
professional manner. Worked closely with post-doctoral staff and other student
researchers in a positive and dynamic atmosphere.

May - August 2010
Research Assistant.
Used Yeast Three-Hybrid System to identify novel mutants of 5S RNA that interact with
TFIIIA and TFIIIA mutants with unusual affinity. Employed PCR, agarose gel
electrophoresis, plasmid preparations, dideoxy sequencing, restriction enzyme digests,
yeast and bacterial transformation, bioinformatics programs, and filter binding assays to
locate mutants and follow through with experiments. Presented research to laboratory
team on a regular basis. Demonstrated aptitude to learn quickly and work independently.
Thought critically about scientific ideas and worked steadily and diligently.
