I am a second-year student specializing in genetics, biomedical sciences. From this internship I hope to gain valuable skills in gathering and analysing data to develop inventive products designed to improve the quality of human life. During this internship I hope to increase my knowledge in both analytical and evaluative skills as well as examining large quantitative data. Undertaking research placement in a career prospect I find most interesting can help me identify and develop skills and knowledge that will underpin a successful career.
