Why Nakatani RIES?

My major goal is to become a researcher in a medicine-related area and work as part of a multinational team on cutting-edge topics. I am particularly interested in areas related to public health and difficult-to-cure diseases. To pursue each of these goals, I believe it is essential to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to collaborate with researchers from other countries. During this program, I would like to gain these abilities through exposing myself to the high-quality research and working in a diverse environment.

Also, I would like polish my English because English has now become the common language in science fields. Moreover, I am looking forward to meeting and sharing ideas with other participants since most of them are different major from me and it must be fascinating to exchange opinions about the research in which we are going to participate.

Goals for the Summer

  • Acquire research techniques as much as possible.
  • Exchange opinions with other fellows and people working in the lab (not only about research topics but anything such as global issues).
  • Obtain good understanding about multi-ethnic environment.
  • Travel around Texas and try the local food and beverage.
