What our interns have to say about their experiences …

I was grateful to gain some real-world lab skills prior to applying for transfer to a four-year university. I enjoyed working in the innovative and flexible start-up environment and would consider it a solid option for future job searches.

This experience has been so valuable and empowering for me to understand what a future career could potentially look like for me. I got a glimpse into what it’s like working in the professional world and gained insight on how to communicate and work with others.
