Silent Spring Institute, Newton, MAMajor: Biological Sciences
Silent Spring Institute is a public health research, non-profit organization. Its focus is on environmental factor and breast cancer risk assessment. As a research assistant intern at Silent Spring Institute, I assisted other research assistants and research scientists with their projects. I gained experience on public health research. I helped to compile existing evidence for over 100 carcinogenic chemicals to be used as reference. I also helped to update the webpage on epidemiological studies about breast cancer.
