Rice ’10 discusses new assay for multiple drug resistant TB

[VIDEO] Lisa Rice ’10 presenting at the 6th Annual New England Tuberculosis Symposium held at the Broad Institute on June 28th 2012. Lisa’s undergraduate thesis work in the Wangh lab involved design and construction of a single-tube assay for species identification using the lab’s LATE-PCR and Lights-On/Lights-Off probe technologies.  After graduation she remained in the lab and worked as a very skilled technician on two projects, a single-tube assay for Sepsis, and on the  construction of a single-tube assay for multi-and-extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (discussed in the video below).  That assay is now beginning validatation in Cape Town, South Africa.
