Thank you to Ben Ahern for your efforts. Ben was an exchange student from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA, USA (Bachelor’s in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) who completed a three-month lab practice training (Aug-Oct 2018) and two-month summer research program (Nov 2018 to Jan 2019) with Dr Ligong Liu on synthesis of drug metabolites with immunological activities. He has returned to the USA to continue his bachelor degree studies.
