Meet the Year 1 Students of the BD2BMI Program
I am a senior attending New York City College of Technology, majoring in biomedical informatics. I have always aimed for a career in medicine. Along with my long-standing curiosity of the human body and the unique view majoring in bioinformatics gave me, I was able to discover an alternative approach to my goals in pursuing medicine. I personally have gained a strong interest in personalized medicine and the potential treatments that may arise from the utilization of bioinformatics tools. With the increased number of diseases and people affected by these diseases, I look forward to being part of a research field that can greatly advance medicine and healthcare.
I am a junior, attending The New York City College of Technology, looking to obtain a bachelor's degree in biomedical informatics. I have always wanted to pursue a career in medicine and I am very fortunate that City Tech has provided me with the opportunity to study a fairly new, yet rapidly advancing field like biomedical informatics. My goal after completion of my degree is to land a job in the field of biomedical informatics while pursuing a master's degree. I am interested in studying CRISPR and discovering the potential advancements that it can have on medical science.
I believe that CRISPR is the future of biomedical informatics and would love to research other ways to advance the technology and make it more efficient. I have read on the potential impact that biomedical informatics can have on the pharmaceutical industry.
I am interested in researching it further and possibly figuring out ways to improve the efficiency of drug development while cutting costs. As my time as a student at City Tech is nearing its end, I am excited that City Tech and Weill Cornell have provided students with an opportunity to be a part of the "Big Data to Biomedical Informatics" program. Being able to gain hands on experience while working alongside a professor / researcher is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I look forward to being a part of.
I am a senior in the Biomedical Informatics program at City Tech College. My goal is to graduate with my bachelor's degree in biomedical informatics and apply to medical school. After entering this program, there has been a shift in my focus. I want to be a pediatrician, but I also want to further my studies in this field. Recently recovering from an illness, there has been a drive to study DNA, proteins and "big data" due to a personal connection. This is a term that describes extremely large data sets that are analyzed computationally to reveal patterns, trends, and associations, especially relevant to human behavior and interactions.
In this field, the data collected and analyzed guide doctors to make better decisions concerning an individual's health. My interest is learning about the human anatomy and how the internal systems work. But, more fascinating is the studying of the blueprint (DNA) that codes for the functions of all these internal systems.
Analyzing all types of medical data to make a medical decision is critical. I was once a patient and all my medical data had to be analyzed. This personal experience built a passion within me to help individuals overcome health problems. This internship will help me build computational and analytical skills dealing with medical data that will prepare me for my future studies in the health and medical field.
As a senior currently obtaining my Bachelor's of Science in Biomedical Informatics, my educational path is far from over. After the successful completion of my undergraduate degree at City Tech, my goal is to attend Medical School. Medicine has been a passion of mine since a very young age, and it is with great honor that I encompass the opportunity to fulfill my goal. Having the opportunity to aid people with potentially life-threatening illnesses is a task that I am ready for. The warm feeling of knowing that I have had a positive impact on a patient's health, is a goal that I intend to acquire. Serving patients is not only a goal, but a duty, not only for myself, but to ensure that I make a substantial contribution for populace in the society. Partaking in the opportunity of being a part of a significant and prestigious program such as the Big Data to Biomedical Informatics program is not only an honor, but a humbling privilege. Strengthening my knowledge as it pertains to Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics will be beneficial not only for educational purposes, but will also be of great significance for my career path.
I am a senior in the Biomedical Informatics Program at The New York City College of Technology. I have always enjoyed the worlds of biology and medicine, so it is exciting to be able to merge to the two worlds together in a computational medium. I am looking forward to joining the Big Data to Biomedical Informatics (BD2BMI) team and learning how to transform vast amounts of biomedical data into knowledge for future applications. Working with Dr. Giannopoulou and Big Data team, in partnership with Weil Cornell, my goal is to acquire the knowledge and skillsets necessary to further my education in graduate school, and into a subsequent PhD program.
I intend to do research in both bioinformatics and medical informatics in hopes of further uncovering the relationships between genetics and chronic diseases, as well as the merger of the two fields in the context of precision healthcare and its implementation. I believe the Big Data to Biomedical Informatics (BD2BMI) Program affords students the incredible opportunity of gaining hands on experience in the field of biomedical informatics, as well as aiding in the conceptualization of future academic and career pathways.
I am a junior at New York City College of Technology. I'm a CSTEP scholar pursuing a bachelor's degree in biomedical informatics and an associate's degree in liberal arts and science. My passion for research began while working with the CSTEP SPUR program and the Emerging Scholars Program. I worked with Professor Alcendor to "Examine the effect of resveratrol on Tetrahymena thermophila." I am currently taking classes that will assist me in completing the internship required to graduate and prepare me for the BD2BMI program. I am excited to begin the BD2BMI program which I believe will help enhance my current programming skills, analyze large amount of data and gain profound experience. After graduating, I intend to work while continuing a master's degree in computation.
Currently I am a student attending NYC College of Technology, Biomedical Informatics program. My desire of studying biomedical sciences stems from my science interest, as it demonstrates a world not visible to the naked eye, plays a big role in everyday life. Science specifically biology and chemistry are stimulating and challenging subjects. Over the years of studying them, my interest has increased because learning things about how our bodies structure and function is particularly interesting for me.
The biomedical science degree will open for me the door to learn more about the vast field of biology and its branches to a greater depth. I have always been interested in human body and intrigued how the complex and diverse mechanisms. From simple cells combining to form tissues, organs and the entire human body, it is truly a marvel of nature that such a complex mechanism exists. And my goal is to understand it to the fullest of my capacity. I believe that being able to pursue a career in biomedical science will help me greatly in reaching this goal. In addition, pursuing a degree in biomedical science will help me fulfill these interests while at the same time, I will be able to enhance my potential and skills in both science and engineering. I have never found another opportunity and field to be able to balance both my interests and my passion.
I am a senior at the New York City of Technology majoring in biomedical informatics. My interests are gene alignment using various BLAST methods and medical informatics. Using various software languages such as python, R, SQL etc., I would like to analyze trends and relationships from a massive amount of data such as electronic health records. Soon, I will graduate from City Tech and would like to become a data analyst at a multinational firm.
