Monte Phillips was involved in collection and processing of biospecimens of ongoing research protocols. She was involved in molecular profiling of patients and DNA/RNA processing. In addition, she collaborated with other clinical staff in research development, design, writing, and publication of research protocols, presentations, and manuscripts. She executed the laboratory portion of the research protocols such as centrifuging, aliquoting, freezing, and processing of human spinal tapped fluids, blood, and urine for research purposes. Monte maintained accurate records concerning experimental results, patient activities, sample inventories, and the shipping and distribution of samples. She also prepared research data by scoring and compiling test results, inputting data into computers, and performing tabulations and data reductions in order to assist in the analysis and interpretation of the research results. She will continue to collaborate on various projects with the CGET section.
