Everyone is friendly and willing to collaborate/provide materials for research. The research is interesting and highly impactful. I appreciated their meetings where professors went over their research.
What I wish was different
I would have liked to see the Buck Institute pre-pandemic times. I missed out on a lot of networking because there were no social events when I was an intern.
Make as many connections as you can if you're given the opportunity to work there. Everyone is really friendly and intelligent.
