How did you get here?

While checking out Open Rounds after a guest speaker from OpenLab came to talk to us, I quickly discovered that the culture there had a striking resemblance to our classroom at the Translational Research Program (TRP). Instead of focusing on traditional, institutionalized research and didactic lectures we are encouraged to embrace creativity and innovation in our projects; we thrive on iteration and human-centered design. Following in the footsteps of a now TRP alum, Cheryl, I started volunteering hoping to expand my mind and increase my exposure in the realm of innovation in health care.
