Most days involved exciting activities, such as learning to suture, CPR, performing an ultrasound on ourselves, and even studying anatomy using real corpses.

I’m not sure if it was the silence, everyone’s concentration, or the fact that their research in immunotherapy for treating cancer was going to potentially save millions of lives, but I was immediately drawn to that environment. I could literally see myself being part of that, learning and research, at the Undergraduate Teaching Labs, or in any other research opportunity that JHU offers.
