Tutor profile: Sahana A.
Pre-Medical Student at Case Western Reserve University
I am a senior undergraduate student applying to medical school in May! I am passionate about math and science and would love to help you all learn in any way :)
I served as a tutor for the InATalent Tutoring Company, teaching middle schoolers a wide variety of sciences: ecology, evolution, epidemiology, and more! I serve as a Teaching Assistant for a biology lab course in my university, Biol214. I assist undergraduates with learning biology lab skills such as pipetting, PCR, Western Blotting, as well as the fundamental concepts behind these techniques.

Case Western Reserve University, Paid Research Assistant
2019 - Present
I conduct wet lab research in the Department of Pharmacology under supervision of PI Marvin Nieman. My project involves the investigation of factors that determine thrombin signaling efficiency through protease activated receptor 4 which initiates platelet activation. I help identify mechanisms by which platelets communicate with different tumor cells using both in vitro and in vivo approaches.
Cleveland Clinic, Clinical Technician
2019 - 2019
I worked in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and provided direct patient care activities along with a team of nurses and physicians. I performed 13 hour shifts consisting of taking vital signs, weights, helping patients with all personal care and cleaning, patient transport, pulse oximetry, insertion of urinary foley catheters, clean dressing changes, and phlebotomy.
National Institutes of Health, Paid Research Assistant
2019 - 2019
I conducted research at the National Cancer Institute. I investigated the inhibitory role of an mRNA modification, ac4C, in nuclease-mediated degradation to be able to detect such modifications in human cells to better understand its function.
