Axel Jacquesson

Axel Jacquesson, a physics major from Cesson-Sevigne, France, was awarded a 2016 summer internship at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, Calif.

He spent eight weeks this summer at the Berkeley Lab, conducting research on quantifying DNA and cell damage caused by cosmic rays. The research was commissioned by NASA for potential future reference in the case of long-duration trips to the moon or Mars.
