Pam provides support in the histology laboratory, focusing on tasks such as specimen handling, accessioning, processing, scanning, archiving and routine preparation of microscopy slides. She generally supports to maintain laboratory instrumentation, maintenance, and ensures cleanliness. In addition to laboratory tasks, Pam assists with office related administrative responsibilities including but not limited to, upkeep of documentation, ordering consumables/supplies and shipping documents and samples.
Pam’s eight years of work experience in preclinical histology started as a Research Associate, for two academic research labs in neuroscience at the Reinagel Lab, and in cardiac regenerative medicine at the Christman Lab (both at the University of California, San Diego). There she gained valuable experience operating the cryostat, staining with hematoxylin & eosin (H&E), and performed histological analyses of tissues.
Pam has several research publications in the field of cardiac regenerative medicine, which she obtained while working at the Christman Lab: Biomaterials 2009, Tissue Engineering 2010, Journal of Cardiovascular Translational Research 2011, and Journal of the American College of Cardiology 2012.
