​Shannon has been an undergraduate researcher at the University of Delaware since the Spring of 2021. She has worked in Dr. Jaramillo-Lambert’s laboratory learning and mastering several research techniques critical to the research program. Last spring Shannon assisted a graduate student on a project characterizing Tyrosyl DNA phosphodiesterase Two (tdpt-1) mutations and their effect on chromosome segregation during meiosis. This project resulted in a publication [Bhandari, N; Pfeiffer, SC.; Jaramillo-Lambert, A (2022), Characterization of N- and C-terminal endogenously tagged Tyrosyl-DNA phosphodiesterase 2 (TDPT-1) C. elegans strains. microPublication Biology. 10.17912/micropub.biology.000540]. Shannon was involved in all aspects of this paper including the investigation, data analysis, writing, and editing. Shannon was awarded funding for a 10-week internship through the Undergraduate Research Summer Scholars program and a DE-INBRE Winter Scholar grant to work on this project. Shannon is also learning advanced imaging techniques such as confocal microscopy to image localization in both normal and mutant male germlines. Apart from these lab research proficiencies, Shannon has demonstrated a superior grasp of the background material for her project and great enthusiasm for the research. Shannon has been accepted into the UD Biological Sciences graduate program and will continue her work on her Masters's degree.
