I learned a lot during the program like how difficult it is to get a drug passed by the FDA or to even make a drug that works with no side effects...I also learned what a successful Biotech company needs like marketing and money. I also liked that Dr. Parul was so interested and into the topic because it made learned it more exciting.'
