Hi guys! It’s me, Kindu back again to tell you all just a little bit more about my independent project and how I’ve enjoyed being part of TRIP this summer. As I stated previously, my project centered around testing whether painkillers, such as Tylenol and Excedrin, would counteract the damage induced by concussion. Through the project, I was able to gain significant data, finish the experiment and gain insight into the process of research.
As for my experience at TRIP I absolutely loved it and if I could I’d do it all over again. Being in this program has not only opened my eyes up to the field of laboratory research, but given me insight to yet another creature that shares similar parts to human beings. I am overjoyed that I was able to be a participant in the program and do highly recommend it to undecided people who have a passion for science. It helps you push you mentally (regardless if you want to go into a science career or not), it gives you a great way to spend your summer as well as gives you a unique experience to put on your resume. All in all, I am glad I was able to be apart of the TRIP community and sad that it’s coming to an end so fast.
