Our people

Every year students are invited to join the lab either for a short Summer semester, or for a full year. We provide state-of-the-art lab training, and all of us benefit from that: our students develop new lab skills, and we receive a lot of help from young, highly motivated people. Many of our trainees have gone on to be very successful –  several have graduated from Medical School and others have become Public Health Professionals. This experience has also helped other young individuals to figure out what would they like to do in the future. We are very happy to introduce here our recent trainees and to provide the links to their professional websites (when available). We are also very proud to be a valuable part of their lives and careers:
