Biochemistry alum Jasmin Ramirez began working at GeneDx shortly after graduating in December 2017 with her BS in Biochemistry. GeneDx provides genetic testing, specializing in rare disorders. Their goal is to make their sequencing services available for patients and their families, not just medical professionals. Jasmin is a MicroArray lab technician and is fully trained to complete Multiplex Ligation-Dependent Probe Amplification assays in order to prepare DNA samples for sequencing on one of their multi-channel DNA analyzers. Jasmin is also lucky to work right next door to fellow alum, Sade Lucas. When asked how her Stevenson education helped prepare her, Jasmin stated: "I think my Stevenson education prepared me for the workplace really well. My last semester I took cell bio and it touched back on some techniques to test for DNA mutations such as Microarray which got me interested in the department I’m currently working in. Also having the independent research opportunities, integrative biochem lab, and the capstone internship definitely made a huge difference. It gave me more confidence in the lab independently and to ask help when needed. All of my professors were and still are always helpful in and outside of classrooms with real world advice."
