While studying Molecular Genetics and French at the Ohio State University, Christina Sass spent three and a half years as a student research assistant in Orosz Research Labs. Working primarily under Jiao-Jing Wang in the microsurgery lab, her primary responsibilties were monitoring the mice colony before and after surgery and harvesting all tissues. She completed her honors thesis under the guidance of Dr. Nicholas DiPaola in the Orosz Research molecular lab where she studied the role of Heme oxygenase -1 in murine renal allograft acceptance. In June 2006 she received a Bachelor of Science with distiction in the field of molecular genetics and honors in the Arts in Sciences. After graduating she was honored to participate in the Research on Research Program where she learned the basics of Web site construction. With this knowledge and the help of the R2 staff, she created the site for the Basic Immune Simulator. In the fall of 2006 she will be relocating to Saint-Etienne, France, where she will be teaching English in a primary school for the year. She then hopes to return to the United States to attend medical school and dreams of one day working for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).
