“I absolutely loved working here. I worked (am currently working) in a genetics laboratory at the Providence VA. I have gotten the opportunity to learn so many different lab techniques outside of the labs offered at school. I also had the opportunity to teach for my PI as a TA for his summer class he teaches at Brown University! ”
