Career Aspirations:

Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide. Among all forms of cancer, breast cancer is one of the most prominent found in women. I want to work toward a better understanding of cancer so that I will be able to contribute to cancer research. I am keen to design, synthesize and bio-evaluate the organic molecules, aiming to identify a preclinical candidate for treatment of breast cancer. My long-term goal is to pursue a career in either academics or the pharmaceutical industry.
