Gray , B.A.
graduated from Bowdoin College, ME, and has been a member of
the Matsuoka Lab since January 2004. As lab manager/senior
research assistant, she is responsible for designing and
executing all in vivo treatments using a transgenic mouse
model of Alzheimer’s disease. Some of the techniques used to
screen potential Alzheimer’s disease treatments include
intracerebroventricular (ICV), intraperitoneal (IP),
intravenous (IV), and intranasal (IN) drug administration.
She is also involved in extracting signaling proteins (tau
and Aβ) from brain tissue and quantifying the proteins
through ELISA, Western Blotting, and Immunohistochemistry.
She has established a microdialysis system, a watermaze
behavioral assessment system, as well as a 400+ transgenic
mouse colony for the lab.
