When we think of Summer, we usually picture in our minds sunny days, beach holidays and thousands of sunsets at amazing spots. Well – I had probably a lot of the last ones, but not at the usual kind of spot I would have ever imagined.
On the 18th of May, and after spending one week in Oslo attending the first onsite Summer School of the Consortium, I found myself flying to Boston – first time in my life flying overseas. I was so excited about this secondment and experiencing the life in Boston, that I could not even sleep in an 8-hours flight. But the next morning there I was, walking through the town of Cambridge and visiting the buildings of Harvard University, the MIT, or crossing the Charles River.
The area is definitely amazing – but the office was even better! Working at the Research & Development Department of Boston Scientific is one of the best experiences I had in my life so far. The team work, the supportive atmosphere, and the constant learning have made of these 15 weeks a really productive time.
I actually collected a lot of impedance data in different configurations and beef hearts that will help me defining an algorithm to detect proper tissue contact – and even to distinguish between healthy and fibrotic? But what I was not expecting was to collect so many wonderful memories and nice friends in such a short period of time. Definitely a great Secondment experience!!!
