Cancer research. Researcher studying the mechanisms by which ultraviolet light causes cancer. She has run a Western blot, a molecular technique that identifies and tags a known protein, and is now checking the quantity of that protein. Studying the causes of cancer can lead to the discovery of targets for anti-cancer (chemotherapy) drugs.
