2007: Surgical Research Assistant: Akron Plastics Group, Summa Health Systems, James A Lehman, M.D. I aided in study design, preparation and execution of a swine study comparing the outcomes on full thickness skin flaps in regards to wound healing and adverse events when performing the procedure by scalpel vs. electrocautery.
2005 -2006: Surgical Research Assistant: Falor Center of Vascular Research, Summa Health Systems, Steve Schmidt, Ph.D. For two summers I worked in the animal lab involved with assessing the effectiveness of various drugs in sustaining the patency of small diameter PTFE grafts in a canine model. I gained experience in vascular surgery as the first-assist for over 17 procedures, as well as partaking in workshops involved with laparoscopic, microscopic, and trauma surgery techniques.
2003 -2004: Genetics Lab Assistant: Miami University, Susan Hoffman, Ph.D. With the intent to incorporate the common cat into future medical models, the focus was in the location and sequencing of CYP2 genes found in the Cytochrome p450 gene cluster. I was exposed to the practices in primer design, RNA sequencing, BAC cloning, PCR, Hybridization, and Southern Blot techniques.
