I work in a Biology research lab at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech
). I'm also a full-time student there, majoring in Biology. (Surprise, surprise, hehe.) I work mostly on electro-physiology, but also do molecular work, such as cloning DNA, making RNA, etc.
I won't go into a lot of detail, since it's very long and involved and puts most people to sleep. But basically, if what I'm researching ends up working, I'll be getting calls from pharmaceutical companies; it could revolutionize the way drugs are made for people with severe illnesses, and I suppose much later on even affect OTC drugs.
I love it.
