Great experience and a lot of room for growth
Research Projects in Biology (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – March 2, 2015
A group of four students including myself started cancer research at Trevecca Nazarene University. Basic research techniques were covered, including: aseptic technique, bacteria culture manipulation, cell culturing, cell counting, cell death monitoring, gel electrophoresis, and cell splitting. Specifically, cell manipulation was performed using MDA231 breast cancer cell lines. This lab is investigating the effect of frankincense oil on the cancer cell line listed above, as well as other tissues in the future. The program hopes to learn more about the chemical pathways that cause apoptosis in breast cancer cells upon exposure to the boswellic acid in frankincense oil.
