“I joined AMBR to ensure that students like me could feel supported and motivated to continue their journey to become professionals in the biomedical field. What I got from AMBR was a community of friends and colleagues that provide support in many areas that include not only the academic and professional side but also the emotional and cultural side. I have met so many inspiring people that clearly love science and love to empower each other that I cannot but feel blessed to be part of this amazing group”.
