T cells sometimes become dysfunctional leading to the development of autoimmune diseases. I can’t wait to share my future findings with you!
For me, the funniest thing I’ve learned during my ongoing journey to become a scientist is that a lot of people think that this career is only right for a specific portion of the population. And I have to tell you right now that this is not true. The next time you look at something (it can be in nature, but also in your kitchen) and you think about a question… there you go… you have just been upgraded to a scientist. Isn’t that just crazy? What we do every day is to look, question, test, analyze the results (which… we are usually wrong) and repeat! Sometimes, when our thinking is just crazy enough, we end it up discovering something new, which will help someone else discover something new, and the circle goes on… and that is the beauty of being a scientist!
