Wet Lab: Basic Science Techniques

Dipika Gupta

Dipika Gupta
UConn Health Doctoral Candidate

To be discussed:

  • Basics of PCR and cloning 
  • DNA gel electrophoresis and imaging
  • Protein gel electrophoresis
  • Western Blotting (time permitting)
  • Techniques prepared at various stages to show general flow of experiments

When:            Thursday, July 20 
Time:              12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Where:           Classroom B16, UConn Medical School

Target Audience: Individuals interested in pursuing careers as scientists and scholars in biological and biomedical sciences.

Registration is CLOSED.

Area of Expertise: Ms. Gupta’s research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms that stem cells and cancer cell model systems employ to preserve their genomic integrity when faced with various genomic insults. Particularly, the mechanisms by which a DNA repair pathway called mismatch repair (MMR) helps preserve genomic integrity. Ms. Gupta uses a number of biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology techniques to understand the molecular basis of how MMR works.
