Background and activities
I have a MSc in Molecular Medicine and a PhD in Medical Technology. The major research areas I have worked with includes omega 3 fatty acids and colorectal cancer, gene regulation and understanding the roles of lncRNAs in cell cycle regulation.
I am experienced with cell cultivation, gene manipulation techniques (siRNAs, ASOs, and CRISPR interference and CRISPR activation), cloning, western blotting, and RT-qPCR. I have also used other methods including chromatin immunoprecipitation, flow cytometry, confocal imaging and establishment of patient-derived xenografts of colorectal cancer in mice.
