“It was amazing to have a chance to be an intern at such a top university. Oxford is a very peaceful and beautiful place. The Structural Biology lab is modern and everyone there is very kind so I felt that I learned a lot at Oxford. To me, the department felt like a big family.”
“During the two months that I spent working at the Wellcome Trust Centre of Human Genetics, the PI I was working with helped me a lot. He and his team members taught me how to conduct research and how to write papers. But, most importantly, I got to experience the way the researchers at Oxford were thinking, living, studying and working.”
“This was the first time that I had stayed alone in a foreign country. At first, I was really worried about coming to Oxford because I could not imagine what it would be like. However, thanks to support from the NDM department, my time at Oxford was trouble-free and I really enjoyed working in a laboratory. Communicating with people from all over the world and doing experiments in a different environment broadened my viewpoint. I felt that I had become a part of the laboratory in a short time.”
