For two juniors in MSU’s Biomedical Laboratory Diagnostics Program—Racheal Nassimbwa and Shamya Harris—undergraduate research brought an opportunity to travel and present research projects to fellow undergraduates from around the country.
I recently graduated from the Biomedical Laboratory Diagnostics Program in May of 2018. I signed up for the match program and was accepted into the Ascension St. John Internship Class of 2019. I graduated from the internship in June of 2019 and got hired as a Medical Laboratory Scientist in the Molecular Pathology Department where I currently reside.
Across Michigan, the United States, and the globe, medical laboratory scientists – many trained by the Michigan State University Biomedical Laboratory Diagnostics Program (BLD) – are working around the clock to test for and inform the public about the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic.
