Hello! My name is Robert Gonzalez, and I will be interning at LPM for the summer (May-August) of 2010. I am a recent high school graduate and will be attending Harvard College in the fall, where I hope to pursue studies in Chemistry.
My experiences with Biology have occurred both in the classroom and in volunteer service. I took a freshman introductory Biology course during my first year of high school and a Health Science Honors course at Tufts University over the summer of 2009. The Health Science course was especially interesting to me, as we analyzed everything from the history of disease to the current issue of medical ethics. I also served as a volunteer in patient escort at the Massachusetts General Hospital from the fall of 2008 to the spring of 2009.
I hope to get an introduction to the unfamiliar world of bioinformatics from my time at LPM.
In my free time I like to read, explore Boston and Cambridge, and play either lacrosse (poorly) or Ultimate Frisbee.
I graduated in May 2010 from Boston College High School and plan to attend Harvard College in the fall as a member of the Class of 2014. I intend to concentrate in either Chemistry or Economics.
