Tom Zaplana

Role : Team Leader, Head of Human Practices

1st year Master student in Life Sciences and Health, track Biochemistry and Biotechnology at University Paris-Saclay.
I was in charge of the management of the project, I had to carry out the administrative tasks, the financial aspects as well as the organization of the different poles of the team. This changed my way of thinking about the professional world in the field of biology, since not all jobs are those of a researcher. I really appreciated this side of following a project from it's start with friends and making it go as far as possible. In addition, it was an opportunity to meet students from around the world, which is very rewarding.
For me, iGEM is one of the best training in real business life, at which I aspire to in a few years.
