Hello! I’m Maya and I’m excited to learn about medical research this year! Part of the reason I joined Biomed was because I was curious about how scientists conducted research and analyzed their findings. Recently, I read the book Lab Girl by Hope Jahren. It gave me a lot of insight into the life of a scientist and how careful you have to be when preforming medical and research tasks. It amazed me how, even for seemingly small tasks, like in the book, when she was filling a bag with medication, you had to be extremely cautious. Lab Girl was a very informative book, and I’m looking forward to learning even more about scientific research this year!
