2019: Kristina Voronov
I began this journey in 2013 when I received an internship at a biotechnological manufacturing firm–Osiris Therapeutics–in sophomore year of high school. Since the internship, my interest in studying how to advance medical technology has grown to become an Individualized Study (INDS) degree which integrates coursework in mathematics, statistics and engineering – set against a background of life sciences. Within my degree, mathematical coursework in calculus (including differential equations), statistics and bioinformatics provides tools for modeling and analysis. These analytical skills combine with engineering coursework in dynamics, mechanics, thermodynamics, materials and machine design to provide practical and useful foundation in how to design, create, and then implement technologies as a technological device. Life science coursework in chemistry, genetics and cell biology prepare me to understand the specific challenges targeted by biomedical researchers.
