Alex Neary

Laboratory Technician IV

Much of my time is spent overseeing the day-to-day activities of the laboratory. I am responsible for ordering laboratory supplies and ensuring that our laboratory and its members meet all training and safety standards. In addition, I supervise our laboratory’s undergraduate students and assist with managing our naked mole rat, blind mole rat, and mouse facilities.

I am currently collaborating with members of the lab to determine the DNA binding domain of SIRT6. By making various truncations of the protein, we hope to determine which portions of the protein are necessary for DNA binding.
