Liu Lab Undergraduate Researcher (Former Employee), Boston, MAAugust 11, 2014
Pros: learned a lot, worked independently

The lab despite having multidisciplinary focuses made sure that everyone had a understanding of all the projects going on in the lab. This lead to a lot of knowledge being transferred – more... which I found great! – less

Research Assistant (Former Employee), Boston, MAApril 18, 2014
Was working towards my master's thesis. My co-workers were very nice a cooperative. The hardest part of the job the very detailed nature of the project, where I had to isolate microscopically via LCM kidney cells. The most enjoyable part was learning how to think like a real scientist and trouble shooting some of the difficulties I encountered.
