TMI sophomore completes internship at research lab

Congratulations to TMI sophomore Dong-Young “Ryan” Kim on completing an internship in South Korea at a biochemistry research lab this summer, May 21-June 12, 2020.

During his internship, Ryan experimented with cancer cells by testing how a new medicine affected various types of cancer cells in varying concentrations; he learned the process of Western blot experiments; and also observed and conducted various experiments of his own.

He also used PCR, qPCR and other equipments to get a better picture of his future career. Ryan plans to become a biochemist/pharmacist.
