My favorite part of MSRP was working in the Jacks lab. I learned to think like a scientist, and, although I saw how challenging research can be when an experiment fails, the experience heightened my passion for cancer research. I enjoyed being in the lab and thinking about scientific questions that I wanted to help answer. Many of my peers from MSRP are still very close friends, and I turn to them to discuss research questions and future career goals.
