Rina wishes to attend NYU and BU. She is currently in the exploratory level, with interests in both business and biology. She is also a member of the school’s Robotics Club.

What challenges did she face?

  • Rina struggled to choose a precise research area and topic to work on during the investigation stage.
  • Rina ran into some difficulties with her longevity research and required help breaking down different components of a scientific paper for an easier understanding.

Matched professor:

The mentor works as a research assistant professor at Tufts University. Previously, he was a postdoctoral researcher at Columbia University. For his research work, he is listed on Forbes 30 Under 30 in Science.

How did our program help her?

  • Rina has been introduced to both academic and industry-side research as a potential future job or interest as a result of the program.
  • Rina pursued a fresh study area in the subfield of biology in longevity research with the help of the professor. She was also led to a better grasp of the cultural and ethical challenges that surround advanced biological research, which are rarely discussed at her level.

Below is part of an example work done during the program:
