I graduated with an honours degree in Biotechnology then continued my studies to graduate with a Master of Philosophy in Applied Bioscience. I am currently managing the antibody production group in DSTT-MRC-PPU where my role also involves maintaining stock levels and production schedules for the antibody. The areas of specialty include: purifying antibodies using affinity column chromatography and analysis of antibodies using Dot and Western Blotting techniques. My background and skill-set also includes Molecular Biology (cloning and bacmid preps.), plant and cell tissue culture, protein expression and purification using standard column chromatography techniques for (small and large scale) using recombinant E.coli and insect cells and protein analysis using standard techniques.
