On May 19th, at the Chemical Faculty of the Warsaw University of Technology, a pre-departure orientation was held for the 2023-24 BioLAB Program participants, who will be pursuing research internships at one of the four partner institutions: University of Virginia, University of Chicago, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, or Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation.
The meeting, besides the informative part that prepared participants for their departure to the USA, was an opportunity for them to get to know each other personally. BioLAB Program Officer, Patrycja Donaburska, spoke about practical aspects of the trip, and this year’s American Fulbright scholar, Madalyn Fernbach (English Teaching Assistant at the Medical University of Łódź), prepared an interactive lecture on daily life in the USA.
The day ended with a shared lunch, well wishes, and see you soon!
