Last Tuesday, we had the honor of hosting Dr. Beate Illek, Adjunct Professor in the Department of Pediatrics, School of Medicine, UC San Diego, in our Career and Study Orientation class (BeSO = Berufs- und Studienorientierung).
In a captivating and enlightening session, she shared insights into her remarkable career journey as a scientist, delving into the current state of her cystic fibrosis research. Moreover, she shed light on her voluntary role as an AHDA Advocate, advocating for migraine research.
Our 11th-grade students gained valuable perspectives on career paths and research endeavors during this special lecture. A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Beate Illek for her visit and for generously imparting her wealth of experiences to our students!
