spectrophotometer, luminometer, coulter cell counter, LiCor system and X-ray machine.
Delivers oral essay, textual exegenesis, multimedia, participatory, and problem-solving lectures
on the following chemistry and biochemistry topics: Amino acid and protein sequencing,
inhibitors, enzyme kinetics, bisubstrate reactions, nucleotide co-enzymes, lipids and
membranes, signal transduction, bioenergetics and glycolysis, fatty acid metabolism/catabolism
Supports the work of scientists, engineers and other analysts by educating laboratory users on
proper equipment operation, maintenance and cleaning, lab and equipment safety, work plans,
chemical stockcontrol, research cataloguing and recordkeepingand experiment trial procedures.
