My name is Bianca Osuna.
I am in my junior year at IUPUI studying neuroscience and psychology and am pursuing a career in the medical field. I am a Life and Health Sciences intern this year in the Kacena Lab and have already learned so much from this experience.
I am learning from a diverse lab team, and then I get to apply the information and skills I study in my courses to actual hands-on work in the lab.
In the lab I can acquire and refine essential skills, such as pipetting and working with mice. I also get an inside look at how a lab functions and how team members work together daily on different research studies.
It has been an exciting and insightful semester so far in the Kacena Lab, and I am looking forward to everything I can learn through this internship.
