“My long-term career goal is to be an independent researcher at an academic institution or pharmaceutical/biotech industry in the field of cancer biology. I plan to achieve this goal by earning my PhD training which is my short-term goal. After my post-doctoral training, as an independent investigator, I will be thrilled to perform cutting-edge research, mentoring other individuals especially those from underrepresented groups like myself, to pursue careers in biomedical research.”
