David Dolivo, an IGERT fellow, completed an internship at the NIH Clinical Center

David Dolivo is thankful for the opportunity his summer internship provided him, which was, the opportunity to experience what it’s like to do research at the largest research hospital in the nation, the 3.4 million square foot National Institute of Health (NIH) Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. There, he worked under Dr. Levine and was able to witness true interdisciplinary research and translational science, bringing a perspective that only personal experience can furnish. Though most of David’s time was spent hard at work in the lab, he was also involved in everything from bioinformatics, to keeping up on the literature, to writing, to negotiating a clinical trial, to reviewing a manuscript, to attending lectures given by world-class intramural and extramural speakers. The experience David received at the NIH complements his research being done with Professor Dominko.
