Madelyn Gehrich; HC70A Winter 2019 & Winter 2020
"Working under Dr. Goldberg has been a once in a lifetime opportunity. Making the transition from former student to Teaching Fellow was hard work, but made me appreciate both the material and the methodology behind Dr. Goldberg's teaching so much more. I have gained so much confidence in myself and fine-tuned my skills in communicating information in an effective, yet thought-provoking way. Getting the chance to explore new strengths all while surrounded by an amazing group of colleagues, now friends, has made this experience one that I will never forget. "

"It was a once in a lifetime opportunity, teaching past and current genetic engineering technology. We are on the cusp of the next big Cohen and Boyer, and witnessing and sharing firsthand the knowledge of innovative developments is a memory I will never forget."
