What’s happening? We’d love to hear how your internship is going: I am working on a pancreatic cancer research project at Fox Chase Cancer Research Center. I am currently working on obtaining DNA from five patient cell lines, and also running PCRs of bacterial DNA, (ERCC3).
How I heard about my internship: My academic advisor, Dr. Davis, suggested completing my summer internship at FCCC.
Why I applied for my internship: My interests in medicine motivated me to seek other ways to help people. I had already raised money for Deworm the World, and I thought conducting research in medicine over the summer would be yet another way for me to give back to the community.
