Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) is a summer internship program of the DAAD for undergraduate students from the United States, Canada and the UK. It offers unique opportunities for students to work with research groups at universities and top research institutions across Germany for a period of 2 to 3 months during the summer. SpaceLife doctoral candidate Yu Zhang, who is supervised by Prof. Dr. Edda Tobiasch (University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, Rheinbach, Germany), applied successfully for a RISE Project. On 19th of June, 2011, DAAD RISE student Ka Yan Lo arrived in Rheinbach and started her 12 weeks internship. Miss Ka Yan Lo is a senior student in the Division of Biological Sciences of the University of California in San Diego, USA. Yu Zhang and Ka Yan Lo will culture and differentiate stem cells of human and bovine origin, trying to understand the differentiation paths towards bone, fat tissue and blood vessel cells.
