    Current Role at StanfordLaboratory Assistant - Parkinson’s Research

    As a lab assistant at the Schuele Lab in the Stanford Department of Pathology, I actively contribute to research focused on understanding Parkinson's disease and developing potential therapies. My role involves a diverse range of tasks, allowing me to gain valuable experience in various laboratory techniques and research methodologies.

    Being part of the lab has allowed me to engage in hands-on learning and observation of essential lab techniques, including DNA extraction and analysis, immunostaining of tissues, PCRs, tissue cultures, working with iPSCs, etc. I have been immersed in a laboratory setting that allows me to work alongside accomplished researchers and clinicians. My experiences in learning these techniques have deepened my understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in neurodegeneration and the potential avenues for therapeutic intervention.

    The Schuele Lab's primary focus lies in gene discovery and novel stem cell technologies. We utilize cutting-edge methods to generate patient-specific stem cell models from individuals with Parkinson's disease. These models offer invaluable into understand the underlying causes of neurodegeneration, providing a foundation for developing targeted biomarkers and innovative therapies.

    My time in the Schuele Lab has not only enriched my technical skills but also deepened my appreciation for the impact that dedicated researchers can have on improving the lives of patients.
