Research Assistant - Animal Facilities and Immunology Department
My responsibilities were the genetic control and heath monitoring of multiple knockout and transgenic mouse strains, as well as the maintenance of many different mouse colonies. I was also involved in training activities for students and professionals.
Additionally, I was involved in a research project that is, the “Analysis of the Recombination Activating Genes 1 and 2”. This has led to the production of my MSc thesis at the University of Manchester.

Research Assistant - Cenix Bioscience, GmbH
I worked in the therapeutic unit of Cenix to test the efficacy of RNA interference (RNAi) in vivo, in the mouse model. I played an active role in the Caenorhabditis elegans functional genome wide RNAi screennig, where we successfully completed more than 99% of the C. elegans genes (Nature 2005, 434: 462-469).
