Heather writes that:
The techniques that I use daily I learned at Ashland University in my Biology and Toxicology coursework, which really helped me to see real-world applications. Some of the specific classes that I liked and where I learned many techniques were Immunology, Genetics, Microbiology and Toxicology. To someone who is looking to get into the same field, I would stress the importance of hands-on experience and application. The research I conducted with the professors at Ashland and the internship at WIL Research Laboratories also helped me to gain a thorough understanding and valuable experience.
