Our Lab

Lab equipment: test tubes, a microscope and a machine with a computer monitor at top

The role of the Center for Research on Genomics and Global Health (CRGGH) laboratory is to manage the center's large biorepository and to design and perform all key "wet-lab" experiments related to CRGGH activities. Located on the fifth floor of Building 50, Room 5531 (separate from the CRGGH office suite also on the NIH main campus), the laboratory is managed and maintained by Ayo Doumatey, Ph.D. and staffed by a research associate (Lin Lei) with expertise in chemistry and molecular biology as well as genetic and genomic techniques. The laboratory is also home to many of CRGGH's trainees.

While space is dedicated for CRGGH wet-lab activities, research projects also make use of a number of shared resources offered by NHGRI, including the Division of Intramural Research core instruments and services. Below are brief descriptions of just a few of the many cellular and molecular techniques currently employed by the CRGGH lab:

The CRGGH laboratory also does a large number of sample preparations for clinical assays and ongoing collaborative activities.
