NEPHTC Student Projects Over the Years
– Anuoluwapo Osideko –
I learned to never solely think of your project and the end goal. Instead you have to formulate other research questions, not only for your own sake, but, also in case your project happens to come to a dead end. My favorite part was feeling welcomed as a valuable member of the team. I truly enjoyed my placement.
