Featured Day in the Life of: Nina, Molecular and Cellular Biology Masters student

I’m excited share my ‘day in the life’ that one of my favorite blogs on WordPress featured me in. Check it out! 🙂


Hey! My name is Nina and I’m in my second year of my Molecular and Cellular Biology Master. Currently, I’m doing a 6-month lab rotation at Yale, where I’m working on developing tools to characterize a class of RNAs called lncRNAs, to investigate their role in cancer. I use cas9 (a gene editing tool) to introduce new genetic material in mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs) to alter the expression of certain lncRNAs, and observe the effects it has on signalling pathways involved in cancer. My day-to-day varies quite a lot, depending on the experiments I’m doing, but usually look somewhat like this:

17:00 am– Rise and Shine! I usually wake up around seven. Today I (really) couldn’t get out of bed and I ended up dozing until 07:45am.
