Boyuan Wang

I came to Michael Laub’s lab because I find his microbiology research inspiring, and the lab members are intellectually supportive. I have a chemical biology background. Many on-campus core facilities have provided punctual, flexible, and thoughtful services to my project, which is critical for me to make full use of my skills. The rapid progress of my project, which is communicated on the department website every time it reaches publication, has helped build my confidence. I’ve also participated in a postdoc mentorship program, and learned from junior faculty about their job search experiences to prepare for my own independent research career.
