Assist with experiments of other researchers in the lab when necessary.
Help with general lab-related activities.
Learn and perform specific experiments related to the project.
Learn CRISPR-related methods and cancer immunology-related experimental approaches including isolation of immune cells, infection and transduction of T cells and other immune cells.
Collaborate with other researchers outside of the lab to carry out studies that are outside of the research expertise.
Participate in scientific meeting and present studies to the research community.
Participate in any departmental activities if necessary and help with organizing those activities if necessary including symposia, lectures, poster presentation etc.
