My fellowship experience
"I got to work in the one of the most prestigious labs in the country, with people whose papers I have been reading and working off of for two years now."

Aims of the Fellowship
I had the amazing opportunity to travel to the heart of Los Angeles and work in the prestigious Valentine lab at UCLA. I worked with the highly-researched enzymatic protein human copper-zinc superoxide dismutase (SOD1), empirically linked with the neurodegenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS is more commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
