am considering a major in biology with a concentration in Molecular Biology because of my interest in research. In the past year and a half I have worked continuously at a laboratory, first at University of Massachusetts Medical School and then at Cornell. At UMass, I became interested in molecular biology because of the work I was doing with the maturation of B-lymphocytes. Because of the educational atmosphere of UMass, I became very involved with the graduate students and was on the cutting edge of research. Everyday I spent at that lab I was contributing to a major breakthrough in the understanding of B-cells. That, to me, what the most exciting environment I could be in. At that point I decided that I wanted to study molecular biology. My interest in molecular biology has been enhanced by my work at Cornell on an edible vaccine for Hepatitis B out of plant tissue. I am also very interested in animals and have considered being a veterinarian for a long time. I was also directed towards biology for that reason.
I am also considering a double major in communications. I became interested in communications through my ongoing interest in the music industry. Recently I have become involved in the promotion of several new artists. This led me to an intense interest in marketing and the communications major. The communications major could add to my education in biology because I plan to try to be an executive in a pharmaceutical company. Knowledge of communications and marketing could help me in this facility.
My career goals are to become an executive in a pharmaceutical company. I like the application basis of a pharmaceutical company. Most of my experience is in academia however, so I would be interested to get a more of a behind the scenes look at research and management at a pharmaceutical company, and the Extern Program would enable me to do that. Also I would possibly like to work for a pharmaceutical company as a patent lawyer. I am considering...
