During spring of my junior year, I started to provide computational biology/bioinformatics support to Professor Roberts’ lab at Dickinson. The lab works on acute myeloid leukemia (a type of blood cancer). I love this work because it allows me to use my skills to help other people and hopefully help save at least one life in my lifetime.
