Annual Fund for Career Readiness Recipient
“Working at Matrivax has helped me gain insight into what kind of career I want to pursue. I now know that lab work is something I enjoy.”
The first couple of weeks were a whirlwind of learning and asking more questions than I felt comfortable with, but once I was able to do work on my own I was amazed at how much I was capable of. I began to understand not just how to do experiments but their role in the larger research goals. By the time I left I could interpret my results and input ideas for further tests. I finished with a greater comprehension of not only vaccines and pharmaceutical research but also of scientific research in general. It was hard to grasp how long term and extensive research projects are when the only experience I had in labs was semester long. All in all, I gained all the experience I wanted to, and a lot that I didn’t even expect.
