B.S. in Biomolecular Science
Global Challenge: Health
I think that health is one of the most important assets that each individual has, and it is my dream to do everything in my power to improve the lives of all people, especially those who, like my grandfather, depend on science.
Hi! I am an undergraduate student at NYU Tandon studying Biomolecular Science. I was born in Pristina, Kosovo but am originally from Korca, Albania. I was always interested in the natural sciences (and even considered becoming a particle physicist at some point), but my passion for biology stemmed from my desire to use science as a tool to make an impact in people’s lives. My hope is to pursue higher education in Bioengineering and to one day be able to engineer therapies for different diseases. I am still exploring different fields of biology, however, genetics/genomics, stem cells, and cancer research have always piqued my interest. I am currently part of the Truong Lab, where we are working on creating dendritic cells from human iPSCs that can be used as a form of cancer immunotherapy. In my free time I enjoy working out, exploring the city, traveling, and watching MotoGP races.
