OSU College of Pharmacy Chen Laboratory

Number of students reviewing: 
Average student review (out of five): 
Dr. Ching-Shih Chen’s laboratory (hereafter referred to as “the Chen Lab”) focuses on the preclinical development of novel cancer therapeutic agents. Members of the Chen Lab utilize both in vitro systems (cell culture, etc) and animal models (xenograft and transgenic mouse models) to investigate the efficacy and mechanism of action of agents developed by medicinal chemists within the lab.
The student will be given an opportunity to observe, learn and take part in the ongoing research. He or she will experience both the wet-bench molecular biology, including techniques such as cell culture and western blotting, and the ongoing animal studies. This will allow the student to learn how the compounds developed within the Chen Lab transition from in vitro to in vivo studies.

To observe and assist in ongoing research projects. Because this externship is only 2 weeks long, an individual independent project is unlikely to be feasible.
8 hours/day, 5 days a week, 1:1 supervision by various graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the Chen lab
