Director, Biotechnology NPCRO (InnovaBio)

I have been director of a biotechnology internship program (InnovaBio) at UVU since 2010.  Students who work in my laboratory gain research experience, and in turn, receive internship credit.  Past projects have ranged from making the reagents (cDNA clones and purified proteins) necessary to develop a biochemical assay for screening small molecule compounds, creating a stable isogenic mammalian platform cell line using Jump-In targeting technology, and identifying blood meal species in approximately 1000 blooded mosquitoes using a nested PCR technique.
