URSP Student Carolina Barriga Performs Immunocytochemistry and Flow Cytometry

The research project I have been working on this summer observes the interaction between circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and human lung micro vascular endothelial cells (HLMVEC) on whether they play a potential role in breast to lung tumor progression. I have performed Immunocytochemistry (ICC) and Flow Cytometry in order to examine the levels of proteins expressed by the cultured endothelial cells. While working on my individual project, I have also acted as a close mentor for the bright students of the Aspiring Scientists Internship Program (ASSIP).
