I found out about the CIRM internship through a flyer posted on the wall in my Biotech 132 class during the 2014 Spring semester at San Diego Miramar College. I am currently interning in the Kirak Lab at The Scripps Research Institute. It has been an amazing six months since I started the internship. I have learned far more than I ever expected and am learning something new and interesting every single day.
