I have a background in cell biology research. My previous focus was in studying cancer progression and metastasis. I am now interested in mechanisms of inflammation, from a vascular physiology perspective.

In my free time (not much) I'm an amateur programmer (java, c#, javascript) and cell phone modder (ex winmo, now android).

comment How can I keep HEK cells alive while expressing NMDA receptors?
Sure, you can give that a try. I would expect that to lower the transfection efficiency rather than the level of expression per cell, but it's easy enough to try it right away. Good luck! BTW: I had to google "Heath Robinson": nice one!
