EXPERIMENTAL RADIATION ONCOLOGY
Students undertaking this four week elective may join ongoing basic research projects in the lab or with permission, initiate their own related projects. This lab is involved in evaluating the role of biologic response modifiers on hematopoietic recovery after treatment of tumors in mice. In addition, we are inserting genes into hematopoietic stem cells that contain them. Objectives are experimental design, cell collection and counting, sizing and culture and DNA isolation. Involvement expected in ongoing research, experimental design, data collection, analysis and report.
