Bench Scientist

●Established Phage to CHO expression systems: a standard protocol for cloning of phage antibody library into mammalian expression systems. Bulk cloning/transfer of phage antibody genes (library) into CHO vector generating pooled mammalian expression library. Developed stable cell line in CHO suspension cells; seeded and isolated single cell (96 and 384 well plates); screened for secreted antibody; recovered single cell/gene expressing desired antibody.

Instruments used:

●Centrifuges, Biomek washers, Automated Liquid handling machines, Cloning, Electroporator (Bacterial), Aseptic cell culture (Stable), Neon-electroporation, 96-, 384 well plates, Shake Flasks, ELISA, FACS (Fortesa, Bio Rad S3, Canto),

Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA 5/2007 - 5/2016

Asst. Biologist

●Successfully identified 5 intermediate regulatory molecules for integrin activation and function (adhesion/ligand binding) by a high throughput screening of shRNA library targeting human Phosphatases.

●Completed a genome wide screening by pooled CRISPR-gRNA library targeting all human genes (about 19,000 genes, 84K constructs) to screen out global integrin regulators. Further identification and validations are being going on in the lab.

●Isolated Monocytes, Leukocytes (B and T cells), Platelets and used for cell based assay systems. I did culture T cells and B cells, infected with Leti-shRNA-GFP (DUSP22), and Lenti-CRISPR-gRNA, isorted GFP cells and used for cell based assays for checking Integrin expression and activation. Also, I used Many cell lines expressing T cells.

●Utilized immunohisto-technology, making tissue slides,, embedding, sectioning, staining.

●Utilized High throughput screening (HTS), High content imaging (cellworks and ImagExpress),

ELISA and Flowcyto analysis.

●Generated in-vivo transgenic shRNA mice by manipulation of putative stem and progenitor cells from donor mice. Studied in-vivo integrin activation.

Instrumentation used:

SEC, FPLC, AEX, SDS-PAGE, Commassie, Silver staining, IP, Co-IP, Pull-down, northern blot,
