El cambio climático trae cambios en temperatura, cambios en los patrones de precipitación, aumento del nivel del mar, olas de calor, reducción en los suministros de agua, entre otros. Y son estos cambios los que pueden alterar nuestra salud y a su vez la calidad de vida que tenemos o que queremos llevar.

My experience as a BioMed SURFer (Summer 2017)

Nicole Felix's picture

My name is Nicole E. Félix-Vélez and I’m a sophomore at the University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez, majoring in Industrial Biotechnology. I always loved science, the way the world around us can be explained in equations to solve or the thought of how the most staggering things are composed of the tiniest particles you’ll never see with the naked eye. Science just amazes me. Even more so, the fact that science is used every day by researchers or engineers to find ways to make our lives better.

Una ayuda para el Caribe frente al cambio climático

El Fondo Verde para el Clima (GCF, por sus siglas en inglés) es un fondo establecido dentro del Marco de Cambio Climático de las Naciones Unidas para asistir países en desarrollo en las prácticas de adaptación y mitigación al cambio climático. Debido que “las naciones que menos contribuyen a menudo están a riesgo de perder más” dijo Barack Obama en 2014, el GCF promete proveer instrumentos significativos, relevantes y efectivos para concertar un esfuerzo global de afrontar el cambio climático. Los países industrializados se han comprometido voluntariamente a aportar $10.3 billones al GCF para ayudar a países en desventaja económica a reducir sus emisiones de gases de invernadero y tomar acción sobre los efectos irreversibles del cambio climático.

Mountains and Mofongo

Two months ago, I was unfamiliar with research and ready for an adventure. Today, I am an enthusiastic scientist with experience in a biomaterials lab. During my time in this REU program, I became a better swimmer, overcame my fear of heights, continued to dominate in the game of dominoes, and became a confident, well-rounded student. I never thought so much about me could change in such a short amount of time.

The microscopic dance of magnetic particles

Joseph Alexander Monarres's picture

This summer has been a long summer full of new experiences and new opportunities to learn. I have been thrown fully out of my comfort zone and been forced to adapt to a broad range of new situations. I’ve had to learn many new things being in a place with a very different culture, that speaks a different language with a climate that is very different from my home in dry southern california. I had to learn to operate simulations using Bash, in a topic that I have no experience in: magnetic colloids. Most importantly of all, what I really learned was how to manage the pace and rigor of research and to be adaptable in areas outside my expertise.

A spectra-cular never ending summer

I can only describe this summer with one word, exhausting. I never thought I would stand at one point of my life and say, “I really want this summer to end”. Now don’t get me wrong, this summer has been one of the most enriching summers of my life. In two months, I’ve learned much more than I will ever learn in a classroom an entire semester. I am passionate about research, and my heart skips a beat every time I enter a lab. Most certainly, I would not feel as happy and eager to keep on learning anywhere else.
