Why did you choose Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences' Virology and Gene Therapy track?

I worked at Mayo Clinic, through the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship, prior to completing my undergraduate career. I was impressed with the work done here and excited to have the opportunity to continue to do research in the field of virology at Mayo Clinic.

I have yet to select an adviser and a lab, which will determine the research that I will do, but it is likely that I will select work that involves the study and manipulation of viral capsid or work that focuses on the delivery and design of genes for therapy or research.
