Jan-Ulrik Dahl, Postdoctoral DFG Research Fellow at Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at the University of Michigan has been a UMCU member since 2014. When Jan moved to Ann Arbor from Germany, he yearned for the ability to explore his new hometown. However, as an international student, it was difficult for him to acquire a car loan from a traditional bank. Following the advice from friends and colleagues, Jan turned to UMCU and finally found the help he needed to finance a car. With the support of UMCU and his Ford Fiesta, Jan has had the freedom to travel all over Michigan, discover some of his new favorite cities such as Detroit and flourish in the A2 community.
