The best part about this summer was meeting everyone in the lab, because all of you are very welcoming and have enriched
my learning experience like none other. This was my first time learning about HIV to that depth, so I was very nervousat first, as the techniques you all use were not all familiar to me. However, based on my readings of papers and articles
I knew that your work is up to date and is in high demand right now, which made my experience more thrilling.
Also, it was hard to adjust to living in Japan alone at first, but with the help of everyone, I made it through and thrived.
Nadita Putri Almira WardaniMy time at Akari lab has been splendid! Having my credited internship in this lab was a right decision and instead of feeling pressured,
i feel right at home here. Everyone was super nice and helpful, even though I didn’t speak Japanese fluently, including Akari sensei,
who taught lots,including life lessons and how I should build my self-esteem. The experience in the lab were enjoyable as i get to do
hands-on experiments a lot, and those were super fun, as the topic really was in line with my interest, which is virology.
At this lab, i didnt get only more knowledge and techniques in infectious disease research, but also i get the most valuable thing,
friendship, almost like family, if i may say.
Overall, my two months spent at akari lab was worth every day, and the experience will always linger with me for the rest of my life.
