Fanny Priaulet is a junior at Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Ingénieurs en Art Chimiques Et Technologiques, in Toulouse, France, majoring in chemical engineering. Fanny spent the summer performing research on the response of cultured epithelial cells to 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzodioxin (TCDD) to permit a better understanding of differences in sensitivity to TCDD within the human population. During her research she learned many things, including the Polymerase Chain Reaction technique and the western blot technique. She also discovered how lab work fits into the context of a larger research project. Fanny learned to organize her schedule in order to do different experiments and their analysis at the same time.
Fanny will graduate from her engineering school in France in October 2010. Then she would like to be an engineer in the cosmetics field or the pharmaceutical field. She would like to work in Research and Development. In her spare time she likes playing soccer, going to the cinema, shopping, and traveling with her friends.
