What I liked
I learned and experienced so much in my short time there. I learned to immunostain, dissect, and image mouse eyes, and presented my research. And I also got to attend seminars on various topics regarding genetics. I learned many lab techniques and a lot about myself as well. I had the opportunity to explore Acadia National park and tried hiking and whitewater rafting for the first time. I met with other summer students who had the same interests and love for science that I do.
