I am a current Master's student in the Biological Sciences Department of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I work in Dr. Jeff Leips' research laboratory where I spend my time researching about genes that affect the immune system across age. While working on my thesis project, I had provided training in making laboratory solutions and in utilizing laboratory equipment (examples: WASPII plater, microinjector, ProtoCoL machine) to seven undergraduate students. During my time as a graduate student, I have directly managed and mentored six undergraduate students. I also work as a graduate assistant for both Maryland's PROMISE AGEP and the Campus-Wide Career-Life Balance Initiative at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, which officially launched in May 2015. For my graduate assistantship, I am establishing a website, which will serve as a central repository for career-life balance resources. Resources include, but are not limited to: career-life balance campus policies and seminars/workshops that advocate career-life balance and/or the wellness of the individual. While working on the website, I am assisting in organizing future career-life balance workshops and seminars. My main website is: amandalo.weebly.com
