Going into my first day interning at a biotech startup, I was pretty skeptical about what my role would be. Would I need to complete boring paperwork, give coffee to the executives, or some other menial work? Fortunately, the answer is no. Instead of doing menial paperwork in a cramped office like I expected, my group dove headfirst into a realm of research, working in a huge lab on top of Jerusalem. The work assigned to me requires skill, insight, and hard work. The research that I will participate in could and probably will change the world of science and medicine. Definitely a great first day to what will be a growing experience.
