Skeletal Biology Research Lab

Since March 2018, I have been working as a lab volunteer in the Skeletal Biology Research Lab within the Injury Biomechanics Research Center at Ohio State. I assist in research projects by scanning/imaging slides, cleaning and labeling bones, and performing DXA scans on subjects. This experience has proven to me that I do belong on the medical track I am currently pursuing, as I find the anatomy of the human body and the work I am currently doing to be fascinating. I find this work very rewarding because I have met like-minded people who have similar interests to myself, and I know that what I am doing now is setting a foundation for future scientific endeavors for not only myself, but also for others who decide to study the bones and slides I have been preparing. By learning how to identify segments of bones and work with slides, I am learning skills I can use in my ultimate career goal of being a forensic medical examiner.
