"My most memorable experiences have been the times I’ve been wrong in the laboratory. The feeling of the ‘a-ha’ moment, especially when it dramatically shifts the lens you were viewing your project through and what you thought was ‘right’, is priceless."

"I took part in a course on Biomedical Entrepreneurship here at Purdue where I worked on a team to analyze the value of a tissue-engineered skin product and develop a business model. In the process of interviewing almost 100 potential customers, we traveled to Atlanta to attend a conference in wound healing and speak to physicians. The trip and the whole course was an incredible experience."
