Alex Turner, 2017 DADD RISE Internship

Alex Turner is a third-year student studying neuroscience. Turner researched mitotic processes and spindle association in the Deluca lab. He applied for the DAAD RISE program because he wanted to complete an internship abroad and abroad and improve his German language skills.

During the summer of 2017, Alex will work in the DKFZ in Heidelberg Germany conducting research on the S/MAR vector and transfecting stem cells as well as transfecting fibroblast to induce pluripotency. While Alex isn't certain about his career plans, he sees this experience as an opportunity to gain practical lab experience and (hopefully) help him decide on a career path.
