    Pros

    Great experience. Learned a lot from professors doing research in molecular biology, immunology, and virology. Really appreciated the hands on experience with the team.

    Cons

    I wish there was an opportunity to publish and do some independent work but I never got placed on any publications. I think that's fine though. I really wish I could continue that research but no funding was available.

    Advice to Management

    GREAT PLACE
