Joe Silva is a new intern at the iCubed laboratories who started his work back in December 2014. He has been working hard training during the weekdays at the lab, trying to soak up as much information as possible. Joe is eager to learn about all that is going on at iCubed. He finds the research they do, especially work with vaccines and other local companies intriguing because he hopes to work on vaccine research one day himself. He hopes that this internship will bring him good hands-on experience in the lab along with giving him to opportunity to do some research of his own to add to his portfolio. Joe is currently a freshman in the University of Rhode Island Medical Lab Science Biotech program and looks forward to graduating in the year 2018.
