As part of our Virtual Skype Tour, our fourth grade Rocketeers had the opportunity to talk to Dr. Lora Wilson. Dr. Wilson is a scientist and post doctoral fellow who works for The University of Colorado’s Health Sciences Center. She does research related to treating and curing pulmonary cancer.
After briefly introducing herself, Dr. Wilson showed us around the lab where she spends most of her days. She explained a typical day at her job and showed us different areas of the lab. We even had the chance to meet and chat with other scientists!
After the tour, we interviewed Dr. Wilson to learn more about her job and her career path. She gave us some great advice and described her work in the field of science. Here are some clips from our interview.
We thank Dr. Wilson for taking the time to talk to us. We learned the ins and outs of working in a research lab and respect her work in finding a cure for cancer.
