As I went up on stage to collect my award of merit on graduation day, amidst the loud clamor of applause, the Principal of my high school asked, “What do you see yourself as in the future?” I replied firmly, saying “Scientist”. When asked today, I stand by my statement. The past four years as a student of Pharmacy have only reiterated my desire to pursue a career in research. The idea of delving into the unknown has always enticed me. It is my passion for Human Anatomy, Pharmacology, and the Biochemistry that continues to propel me to the field of research. In this regard, I wish to pursue a Ph.D. in the Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Sciences with an advanced concentration in Physiology and Pharmacology, focusing on Neurobiology and CNS Disorders.
