Undergraduate Research Assistant
The Flick lab in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine investigates the role of coagulation and fibrinolytic factors in obesity development. We examine the cellular, molecular, and biochemical mechanisms by which coagulation and fibrinolytic factors induce inflammatory responses that lead to obesity and the downstream metabolic consequences using in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo models. This project will require developing skills in a variety of molecular biology and biochemistry techniques, including but not limited to mammalian cell culture, genotyping, qRT-PCR, and immnuohistochemistry. We seek someone interested in science and studying obesity development. Must be available on Wednesdays for 2-3 hrs. Rising sophomore, junior, and senior students are welcome to apply.
