W&J really helped me prepare for a project of this magnitude by providing resources, including help from other students and the professors.
All of the science courses I have taken so far have given me more laboratory experience than some of my fellow interns. I also believe that my Magellan to Costa Rica last summer helped me get my internship.
W&J encourages students to get out of their comfort zone and try something they only dreamed of doing.
The most surreal part of this experience is that down the road, some of the research I have done could possibly lead to treatments for people that are affected by these bacteria, which is mainly people with cystic fibrosis.
I credit this opportunity to Dr. DeBerry and her class during JayTerm that helped tremendously with applying to science-related internships. I highly recommend it to all future students who are interested in finding a science-related internship.
