Reviews Summary of research assistance
Research assistance (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – May 3, 2016
One of the recent projects that really inspired me to do research on the regenerative Medicine is during my last summer at Texas A&M. I am grateful that I was able to get a chance to work on the Zebra fish regeneration research with Dr. Applegate and his Graduate students. During the research I got a chance to learn some hands on lab experience working with Optical Coherence Tomography and using it to examine the zebra fish skin cell tissue to understand the complex tissue regeneration. Our work on fin regeneration has helped establish the cellular origins of regenerated fin tissue, and has identified new concepts and molecular mechanisms of appendage regeneration. During the process we accomplish our goals to acquire and quantify live cellular and subcellular events in regenerating complex tissues. It was a great experience to be working with the Graduate students, I learned some valuable kills that i couldn't ask for more as a Freshmen student.
