Meet Claire Floyd, a nontraditional student in our Medical Laboratory Science Program. Claire worked for over 10 years in another profession before choosing to pursue an education in a healthcare field. Here's what she has to say about the program and her experience:

"I was seeking a fast-paced program that would allow me to start working in healthcare quickly, and the LSUHS Medical Laboratory Science program is a high value program that trains you in multiple different laboratory disciplines and prepares you for national board exams all within just a year and a half.
So far, I'm loving the small class size and intimacy of the program. Although the curriculum is rigorous, it's clear that the instructors are all invested in our success as students and future professionals. It's reassuring to have such a solid support system, especially as a nontraditional student returning to the classroom."

This week in Molecular Diagnostics, our students are learning about DNA extraction, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and gel electrophoresis. Yesterday, each student collected their own buccal cells for extraction and performed PCR on their sample. Today, they are loading their amplified DNA sample into the gel chamber for electrophoresis. Techniques such as this are crucial to diagnosis of a variety of diseases as well as treatment monitoring and disease prevention.
