Major: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
Hometown: Erie, Colorado
My fellowship experience:
The most valuable part of this experience was being able to fully immerse myself into primary research. Even though I have had laboratory classes before, the research lab offered a completely different feel from the classes that some may find more or less pleasing depending on personal preferences. I found the environment to be incredibly supportive and conducive to furthering understanding of biochemical functions. Before this fellowship, I was looking roughly at becoming involved in the medical or research fields. Now, I understand that I am better suited to the research aspect of the medical field and will pursue a career in medical science.
