Scientific Liaison - DNASU Core Facility
Tempe Arizona, US

I am currently the Scientific Liaison for the DNASU Plasmid Repository in the Center for Personalized Diagnostics at the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University. Plasmids are circular pieces of DNA containing individual genes that are used for biological and biomedical experiments and our repository stores and distributes over 191,000 of these plasmids. My role as the scientific liaison is to work and coordinate with researchers and consortia depositing plasmids with DNASU, with researchers receiving the plasmids from DNASU, and with the informaticists and technicians at the facility to ensure that plasmids are deposited with the appropriate information, that the researcher receiving the plasmids understands this information and that our facility is coordinated and always improving. In addition, I manage and negotiate all legal agreements that are required to deposit or to receive plasmids.
