Greetings from Oklahoma City!
My name is Marek and I am a Ph.D. student who take part in the 2022/23 edition of the BioLab program. This summer I have reached MD. Ph.D. Jose Alberola-Ila’s lab in OMRF (Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation). In Pepe’s lab (how MD. Ph.D. Alberola-Ila is called) we try to explain the molecular pathways of ILCs (Innate Lymphoid cells) development.
Why do I decided to apply to the program? During my studies I have never taken part in any exchange program, so assumed it is high time to gather this kind of life and lab experience.
My 3 main goals are:
- to learn how to work with laboratory animals,
- to improve my cytometry skills,
- to practice my English
…and, so far it works ☺
Not only work and research!
For polish people, the U.S. is a huge and exotic country with many possibilities to travel and face new cultures or mindsets. I am a Biologist, which is why I enjoy observing Oklahoma’s nature.
