"I think that one of the best ways to learn is by conducting scientific research. It makes you aware that scientific knowledge is dynamic and constantly advancing, always challenging current knowledge."

"Even though I didn’t work on drug design in this program, Nakamura Lab and Japan in general taught me one very crucial thing: how to work. I saw people putting their soul into their projects and generating new ideas every single day. They were passionate about their projects and didn’t just work; they did something they enjoyed."
