Nathalia Mendoza, Clinical Laboratory Sciences




“I am truly grateful for this great opportunity that I have been given.”

"In my co-op, I have been assisting a PhD student in her research about how a certain drug will work against a cancerous liver cell. In the lab I have been able to test these cells by doing Cell Culture, RNA extraction, Gene Expression, ELISA and many other assays and techniques. I have found this experience to be the best I have ever encountered at school. Being able to work in a research lab has taught me how hard researchers work to get the data they need. I am fortunate to be able to work with such an outstanding group of people because they have counseled me with regards to schoolwork and also taught me the things they have learned in their classes, which in return has helped me with my own career path. I am truly grateful for this great opportunity that I have been given and will work really hard to continue to learn as much as I can and to build on what I've learned already."
