Majors: Biology

FIWH Program: Internship at AbbVie – Summer 2014

Future Plans: Medical school or graduate school

Working with FIWH, I not only received a lab experience that was beyond my expectations, but I tackled real world problems alongside experts in medicinal chemistry. I was at the interface between many professionals: chemists, analysts, biologists, IT experts, and businessmen. We had lunches with senior executives, vice presidents and other notables with frank conversations about the present challenges, the past and the future of the pharmaceutical industry. My eyes were most opened to the drug development process, and the need for experts in the stages before it can be prescribed by a physician. I believe that FIWH has equipped me both academically and professionally to better pursue the career that God calls me to.
