Research Interests

Real-time PCR has been used for the detection and quantification of WT or recombinant AAV genomes in various applications, including (but not limited to) titration and biodistribution. My duty is performing q-PCR for the lab and the vector core facility. I'm also responsible for reporting and interpreting the results, developing new protocols, and trouble-shooting and optimizing the real-time PCR conditions.  More recently I’ve been standardizing and validating our protocols according to FDA guidelines for reporting biodistribution results.
