I was able to assist in my lab through direct participant interaction, as well as have the agency to pose and answer my own scientific question throughout my research. Understanding the method by which research is conducted has made me a more thorough and effective reader of scientific works. Having medical research experience was an extremely rewarding part of my undergraduate career, and will hopefully be a significant help in achieving my future goals.
