5. Research Experience

2006.4~2009.7

China-UK NYNU-RRES Joint Insect Biology Laboratory, ×××× Normal University

Under the guidance of the Guest Professor ××××, I have received strict and formal training. The main work I did include DNA, RNA extraction, electrophoresis, PCR, Reverse Transcriptase-PCR, culture fruit fly,
culture mosquito, bacterium culture, spread plate method and other experiments. At the last term, I participate in one provincial subject and one colonel-level program.

Winter Vacation in 2007

Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Under the guidance of the doctor××××, I learned to do SDS-PAGE, transfection, culture preservation and other experiments.

2009.9~present

National Glycoengineering research center, School of Life science, ××××University

The research was focused on the activity of exopolysaccharide from ××××. Through the separation,extraction, purification, we got two exopolysaccharide(EPS-1, EPS-2). Then, the immunomodulation and anticancer activities of the EPS-1, EPS-2 were studied. The results showed that the EPS-1 was a good immunomodulator. It had performed well in enhancing humoral immunity, cellular immunity, or specific, non-specific immunity. Both of the EPS-1, EPS-2 have anticancer activities. So,the mechanism of apoptosis induced by EPS in K562 cells was studied.

2010.11~2011.9

As an exchange student did research in Department of Pharmacy of ×××× Medical College

Dear Httzsn,

Very impressive.

Are you applying to a western university (in the US or Europe)?

If yes, there a few personal items you must remove from your CV. Just let me know.

Otherwise, I suggest the following changes to section 7.

Regards,

John

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi John

Thank you very much for your suggestion. I will adopt it.

I want to apply Europe's universities, such as Fance, Germery, Swiss, Sweden, UK, etc.

Venture to ask this question, do you know some professors do the research relate to my background?

Thank you again!

best wishes

Hi

I'm sure I'm obliged to you for your good opinion.

I modified my letter under your suggestion, but I think I'll still need a bit of your help to make it better.

best wishes
