Hi! I’m Cailin Climer, and I’m the content marketing intern here at ARMI. I’m a rising senior at University of Southern California, where I study biology and psychology. When I’m not in the lab, I enjoy writing, boxing, sketching and painting, and film.
When I am in the lab, I’m working in the Gerontology building at USC, examining the link between UV exposure and subsequent DNA decay in C. elegans. I also have a lab position in the Psychology department, where I’m currently co-writing a paper about how physical activity can help moderate risk factors for Alzheimer’s Disease. My experiences with my double major have shown me that one of my passions is presenting scientific content in a way that is accessible to people even without a scientific background, a skill that made me well-suited for the content marketing position at ARMI.
Throughout the summer here at ARMI I’ve been working on a variety of projects including creating content for the Member Portal, aggregating articles regarding new innovations in biotechnology, and identifying gaps in the industry for ARMI’s future focus. ARMI has helped me make important connections for my future in the industry, has expanded my marketing skills, and has deepened my understanding of biotechnology. I’ve learned a lot about the fascinating field of biofabrication, and I’m even more excited to be heading into my final year before entering the workforce. I don’t have any concrete plans yet, but I hope to find my niche somewhere in the biotech field, possibly in the intersection between science writing and content creation. The tissue engineering industry is growing unimaginably fast, and it’s an incredible feeling to be part of this scientific growth.
