Rebecca, a Brown Undergraduate who studied biology and visual Art, decided to do a fifth-year ScM in the Biotechnology Program. During her 5th Year, Rebecca had the chance to customize her curriculum to fit her interests and did a master’s thesis on bat echolocation. She also gained real-world industry experience during a co-op with C.R. Bard, a global medical technology firm.
