LMP Q&A BUG: Melanie Peralta

LMP QA BUG

 

This week the LMP Q&A BUG made its way to the Pathology Research Program (PRP) and ‘infected’ Melanie Peralta, Research Technician. The nomination came from our previous Q&A BUG ‘victim,’ Dr. Rohan John. Check out Dr. Johns’s photo Q&A, HERE.

The PRP Laboratory is a very unique area of LMP. It operates exclusively for research purposes; there is no automated machinery, meaning all services are administered manually, including immunohistochemistry staining, and lastly; the PRP Laboratory stands out as they handle diverse specimen, including human and animal tissue.

Samples come in through LMP Research and clients will request specific testing to be performed to help advance their studies.  These requests can come from around the world, and due to the PRP’s affiliation in research, it means the lab is included in many different publications.

Melanie is a Level IV Technician and is team leader in the lab. She will perform different histological services daily, and notes, “everyday is a surprise,” as it’s all dependent on the research that comes in.

It’s an area that participates and even enables innovation in medical research, and is a very interesting component of LMP.

 

To learn a little bit about Melanie’s personal side, check out her photo Q&A below. Make sure to read to the end to find out who’s next to be ‘infected’ by the LMP Q&A BUG. It could be you!
