I came to the IEU from the United States and find there are many factors that give the IEU an edge over research institutions there. It's cutting-edge methods, multidisciplinary and warmly collaborative approach to research, and cohesive lab atmosphere make the IEU an exciting and stimulating place to be as a young investigator.
