"My experience as a GRC intern"

"My experience as a GRC intern"

By Linh Le,MS; PhD Candidate in the Neuroscience Program

My internship experience with the Genomics Research Center (GRC) directly stemmed from my research interest in the role of microglia in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Hence, it is only fair if I give a very brief introduction on the research field, before getting to why I chose this internship. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common age-related dementia, accounting for the progressive cognitive impairment and compromised life quality of millions of people worldwide.
