KATELYNNE DONNELLY, M.S. – R & D Scientist

Katelynne Donnelly, M.S. in Neurophysiology, graduated from the University of Wyoming in 2018. Her graduate work investigated the effects of several environmental toxins (bisphenol- A, caffeine, and gabapentine) on the development of the nervous system using the Xenopus laevis tadpole model. She is experienced in behavioral testing, immunohistochemistry studies, and molecular biology methods related to CNS development and function. Katelynne has been with Biotect Services since Jan 2019 performing and reporting on cell viability testing on cancer and healthy cells. She currently manages our 3D organoid cell model program.

DR. Lyndah Chow, PH.D. – Consultant: Part-Time Scientist

Dr. Lyndah Chow is a research scientist, currently investigating mechanisms of cancer immunotherapy in mouse and dog models of cancer with the Dow lab for immunotherapy at Colorado State University.  Dr. Chow’s graduate work centered around investigating and cultivating various types of stem cells for immune modulation in inflammatory disease and multi drug resistant bacterial infections. Because of Dr Chow’s extensive background in bench top research, her contribution to biotech services involves advising on experimental models, trouble shooting, designing in vitro models for compound testing, as well as analysis of flow cytometry and high throughput transcriptomic data.
