Over the last 8 weeks, Lisa Trevino has been working under the supervision of IRACDA postdoc Dr. Spencer Gang to perform research in our lab as part of the UCSD School of Medicine’s Pharmacology Department’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) Program.
While with us, Lisa grew familiar with C. elegans as a model organism and worked with Spencer to assess pals-22 mutants for altered mitochondrial function and morphology. As part of this research, they helped to establish a protocol for TMRM staining to measure mitochondrial potential in our lab.
Thank you for your great work during your fellowship and congratulations on a great presentation of your research at the SURF Research Symposium! Best of luck with your future endeavors.
