>>It's very interesting. It's a lot of work and a lot of information in a very short period

of time, but it's so educational and we're learning so much coming out of it.

We learn so much in so many different areas, it opens your mind to a lot of different types

of research within genetics and nursing.

>>We heard Jean Jenkins talk about the importance of genetics in nursing. It's an exploding

area of science and it's not just a trend, it's going to permeate everything that we

do.

>>We talk a lot about the behavioral things that we can do to reduce our risk of cardiovascular

disease, so I kind of wanted to take that a step further and to see what lied ahead

in terms of the genetics of cardiovascular disease, and how I could apply that, you know,

as a nurse researcher.

>>UCSF is really committed to incorporating genetics into our research, and into our curricula,

and so having a student, and a post-doc and a faculty member helps us to really infuse

genetics throughout the university.

I feel like I'm learning a new language, and I'm leaving here with a new vocabulary and

a new understanding that I can hopefully use to move forward with my research.

>>And career-wise, just getting a good, strong foundation of what we're doing. I'm studying

pre-natal genetic testing, and knowing what that is, inside and out, and not just like

what I do in the hospital setting, but what the people in the labs do, and how the results

come about, and how you can actually apply those results, really, SGI has made that all

possible for my brain to function. [laughs]

>>To come out here for a month, to get exposure to the DC area, to be on the NIH campus, to

meet so many wonderful educators and researchers, it's definitely a worthwhile experience and,

definitely I would do it again.
