Internship

Using a biochemical assay which has been developed in the lab the intern will be analyzing the differential composition of chromatin proteins in different stages of stem cell differentiation in order to identify stem cell specific chromatin proteins. Once identified, the intern will study their role in stem cell maintenance using a variety of molecular, microscopic and biochemical methods.

Company/Organization
