currently i am involved in finding the causative Gene defects in patients with inherited metabolic disorders based on Genetics (exome Sequencing). in order to confirm that the disease in the patient is caused by the suspected DNA defect, several functional tests in patient derived material - e.g. cells and blood, are done. i plan and perform some of the experiments, and coordinate those done by my collegues. in addition, i interpret, discuss, and report the results in scientific Publications. in my previous jobs as Research and development Technician, i have become experienced in many techniques e.g. molecular biology, Molecular Cloning, Virus production, Cell biology & Biochemistry, Immunoassays (e.g. ELISA, mesoscale, eia, ria, ripa), biacore, SDS-PAGE, Western blot, hp-sec, and affinity Chromatography. in addition, i learned to work under Good Laboratory Practice (glp) and discovered the importance of quality rules and guidelines at Pharmaceutical companies. courses: - glp - advanced glp - Communication - English in Scientific writing - Time Management - Project Management
