In Their Own Words: Jade Halsey and her NH-INBRE Experience


I am a first-generation college student from Manchester NH.  I will graduate with a B.S. in Biology and a Minor in Chemistry in May 2011.  I have been engaged in undergraduate research with Dr. Susan Whittemore for the past three years. After graduation, I plan to pursue a career in the biomedical sciences and am currently seeking employment at biotech firms and research labs.  The NH-INBRE program helped me to decide my career path.

I was very excited when I learned of this opportunity to work as an INBRE research intern. My first year in college was very challenging and I often wanted to quit. Getting involved in research has kept me in college. Learning science hands-on in the laboratory has allowed me to truly grasp the concepts presented in the classroom setting and apply them in the real world. Working on this particular grant project has allowed me to grow as a scientist and improve my job prospects.

Overall, the experience has made me feel part of a larger picture of science as a whole and has taught me to think on a larger scale. I am grateful for this opportunity.

May 2011 Update: Upon graduation, Ms. Halsey was employed with New England Peptide, working in the bio-tech industry.
