Aki Ohdera – Headed for graduate school

What made the OIMB special for me was to have the opportunity to be in an environment where every field trip we took was a chance to observe nature and to use these experiences to develop new questions and try to answer them myself. I feel that escaping books and the class room is important for those who want to study any area of biology. The faculty and their wealth of knowledge made OIMB an intellectually stimulating place. After graduation I conducted an internship in Japan and now I am off to graduate school. My experiences at OIMB will most certainly contribute to my success.
