“NREIP provided me the tools, lab space and mentorship needed to cultivate my research interests in a professional environment. As an NREIP intern I found purpose in my work and a community to learn from. Mentorship from brilliant, kind, Navy Medical entomologists showed me this path, major, career, is worth it and can be incredibly rewarding and so much fun. I got to ask questions and work alongside experts, who were also eager to teach and produce tangible work.”
