     I’ve learnt about many aspects of the human
     body and understand how research is used
     to make new discoveries in the improvement
     of health and wellbeing. Since my second
     year, I’ve interned at the Walter and Eliza Hall
     Institute of Medical Research. This allowed
     me to work in a real lab and apply the theory
     I learnt at university to an actual project.
