In order to do that, the BioUniversity group relies on a fantastic team of teachers to present and facilitate the workshops.
Shondra completed her PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology from The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in August 2008. While at UT Southwestern, she worked in Matthew Porteus’ lab on the optimization of zinc finger nucleases for use in mammalian cells. After graduate school, she was recruited to Sigma Life Science as an R&D senior scientist working to improve the CompoZr ZFN platform.
She has since moved into a field application specialist position where she works directly with researchers to learn more about their work and uses her first hand knowledge to help advance their research.
