How/Why Research? I have a special interest in women’s reproductive health as a career path, so I looked specifically for UNC professors doing research on that topic. I emailed and met with a professor that was performing research I was interested in and asked to join his lab as a research assistant at the end of the meeting.
Research Experience: I perform various wet lab techniques, including PCR, cell culture, and cDNA synthesis, with the goal of determining new causes of infertility. Everything I do in the lab, I learned from my lab manager and my core biology classes.
Student Organizations/Clubs: ACERIP, HeartSafe, and Runway of Dreams @ UNC
