"My summer experience gave me the technical skills and scientific knowledge to move into my senior year ready to work on a project of my own, which I will develop into a thesis for the Glynn Family Honors Program."
"My favorite part of this research was being able to being able to brainstorm creative model ideas and bring them to life in the lab."
"Contrary to what some may think, lab work is not a solitary job. Through the lab community, I was reminded to keep in mind the person—both those persons around me and those I could be helping through this research. As I realized this summer, this research contributes to society, and the way the lab community interacts while researching drives the recognition of the humanity it ultimately serves."
"The summer research experience taught me to do science more than just carry on the experiments, but also to think about the reason underneath the results in a scientific way."
"I am fascinated by the magnitude of possibilities that need to be tested to find the optimal delivery method for the most patients. Controlling the many variables experimentally tested my understanding and creativity as an engineer. Additionally, certain experiments certainly required a copious amount of patience and diligence. The experience shaped my understanding of drug development and the intricacies of all research endeavors. I have a newfound interest in cellular biology because so many mechanisms remain mysteries. I plan to carry this curiosity with me as I continue to explore human health."
