Pros: my team. occassional free lunch. looking forward to being there everyday
Cons: no patient interaction
I worked in the dermatopath department researching the pathogenesis of Melanoma. Techniques used - PCR, western blotting, gel electrophoresis, rodent model work, cell culture. I studied the genetic and epigenetic factors involved in the pathogensis in cancer. My collagues are amazing and the hardest part about leaving this job will not be interacting with them everyday. Besides my lab mates, having the opportunity to be of the cusp of discovery and learning new concepts and abilities was fascinating.
