My Work Experience

Where I've interned and worked during my career.

UConn School of Nursing | Nov 2019 - Jul 2022

Laboratory Technician II -Lab Manager

The Biobehavioral Research Laboratory opened its installations to support the research of different faculty at the School of Nursing at UConn in 2019. My main achievement was obtaining the permit to function as a CORE lab, submitting all initial documentation to the office of cost analysis, preparing budgets, setting up a billing procedure, and developing SOP for different aspects of the laboratory's daily routines. I implemented the laboratory by acquiring equipment for sample analysis and processing, from searching, purchasing, and installing to maintaining specialized equipment for molecular biology applications. I have developed SOP for collecting, transporting, and processing biological samples for more than ten projects, as well as keeping inventories of all collected and processed samples. Finally, I have performed and trained collaborators in sample analysis using DNA or RNA extraction, PCR, SNP genotyping, and ELISA assays.
