Experiences in Undergraduate Research

RESEARCH EXPERIENCE
October 2017 Present Research Scientist Assistant under Dr. Joseph Boll,
University of Texas at Arlington
Setting up an antimicrobial peptide display in M. smegmatis to
screen for positive killing hits.

November 2016 Immunology undergraduate research under Dr. Jason


September 2017 Kubinak, University of Texas at Arlington
Sepsis in BALB B/D mouse models: Mice deficient in B1 or B2
cells were infected with Salmonella enterica. Following infection,
mice of each type were orally gavaged with healthy feces from a
wild type mouse. Once the animals were septic, bacteria levels in
tissue and serum were measured. The infection trends were
analyzed in Excel.

May 2016 - September 2016 Biochemistry undergraduate research under Dr. Kayunta
Johnson-Winters, University of Texas at Arlington
Enzyme kinetics of oxidoreductase: The oxidoreductase enzyme
was subjected to mutagenesis to alter the 9th amino acid residue,
threonine, to alanine. Mutant enzyme was grown in E. coli then
purified. Binding rates were analyzed in Excel.
