Esther Wang was a go-getter and contacted us about a summer position in early 2017. We were impressed by her previous lab experience and were excited to have her join us. Esther has worked closely with Payton Marshall and Gernot Kaber. Payton forced her into becoming a morning person and she has spent countless hours in the TC room.
Current School/Year: Sophomore at the University of Chicago
Career Goals: MD or MD-PhD
One or MORE fun things you’ll remember about the lab:
” 1) When someone asks you to aliquot the BME, say no. (Also, don’t use a stripette, sterilize it AFTER you dilute it to minimize the smell, and, no matter what, do NOT do it in the tissue culture room.)
2) If anything goes wrong, ask Gernot. He’ll know what to do 99.9% of the time. (Just give up in the case of the other 0.1%).
3) No one ages (appearance-wise) past 20 in this lab, apparently.”
