“I feel honored and privileged to have been selected to train at the National Institutes of Health, where many truly remarkable advancements in medicine have been made,” she said. “I am excited to learn from and work next to some of the most amazing scientific minds on the planet.”

From June to August, Kaczorowski will receive training and research experience while working with scientists as they find cures for infectious diseases at the NIH main campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

She added, “This is an opportunity to try out my dream job! I cannot think of a better place to have a first-hand experience than one of the world's leading research centers. I expect to be tested in more ways than I can conceive. I look forward to the challenge and am excited to see what I can accomplish.”

At the end of the summer, she will present her research findings at a national meeting at the NIH. In the fall, she will present her findings and experience at NWTC.

Kaczorowski is the second student from the College to study at the NIH. Donna Milkie studied there last summer.

She will graduate from NWTC in Spring 2018. After her time at the College, she plans to continue with her education and earn a Bachelor of Science degree and eventually a PhD.
