I enjoyed learning new laboratory techniques and engaging in independent research. My favorite part was learning about various signaling cascades involved in ALS pathology and getting up to date on the literature concerning my protein of interest, c9orf72.
What I wish was different
There's nothing I would have changed. This was experience I needed.
Don't be afraid of failure!
There were so many things that went wrong while I was trying to learn and apply my techniques and run experiments, sometimes due to my mistakes, and sometimes due to no one's. It was through these failures that I learned the most about how I needed to develop as a scientist.
