Fellowship Proposal Intro

Submitted by mmaliha on Tue, 12/04/2018 - 15:02

I will not lie. Once I had known about my assignment for LEE-SIP internship, I was most excited at the prospect of cancer research. I expected working with petri dishes and isolated cell cultures, either human’s or mice’s. So, I was really surprised to learn that I would be working with fruit flies and mostly in-vivo. It seems as though the learning curve from working in the lab is exponential and continuous I have already learned so much, yet there is so much to run. I want to know the toxicology impacts. Not only does this research ties in with my current interest on genetics and cell and molecular biology, rather it facilitates my future interest and path as an MDPhD candidate. Experiments like what I am conducting now will dictate possible drug uses for chemotherapy patients. Or, at the very least, it will have impact on environmental science and toxicology.
