I am Yang Wang from Aarhus University, the ESR1 in PRORISK project. From 2nd of May to 30th of June 2022, I was placed at DuPont Nutrition Biosciences ApS part of IFF in Aarhus of Denmark during my internship.

I received a very warm welcome from colleagues at IFF and they passionately showed me around the buildings, canteen and facilities at IFF. Under the supervision of Steffen and Anders, I performed a proteomics study through the process of extracting proteins to analyze the proteomic data using their state-to-the-art technologies. The internship aimed to understand the proteomic response of springtails to phenanthrene combined with drought. With guidance from Steffen and training from other colleagues at IFF, I got familiar with the work environment, obeyed the rules, and gradually knew about proteomics. It was a very pleasant time to work at IFF.

I was also inspired by their enterprise goals, visions and values. Let me quote their goal “Applying science and creativity for a better world” and say a hardcore of science for business is so cool!

Last but not least, I greatly appreciate all the helps from IFF, and thank you for the support and opportunity provided by the EU Commission under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action – European Training Network (Project No.: 859891).
