Lianna Swanson, PhD

I graduated from Technion Israel Institute of Technology in 2001 with a BA in Biology and went on to pursue my PhD at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. During my graduate school I’ve worked with frogs, yeast and (mainly) flies. I have extensive molecular biology (PCR, cloning, sequencing, etc) knowledge and a fair amount of biochemistry experience (bacterial expression, protein purification and western blotting). I’ve also performed quite a bit of immunohistochemistry and fluorescent imaging. I’ve been working at Addgene, the non-profit plasmid repository, since 2008.
