Why I Chose the SYBB MS Program at CWRU

After realizing my passion for bioinformatics, I knew I wanted to learn more about the subject by earning my MS. Case has an excellent program, and it has proved to be a perfect match for me. I like that the program promotes teamwork and collaboration, but I also feel confident working by myself. I have made great friends here, and as an international student, I have learned so much about American culture from the SYBB program director. When I’m free, I enjoy spending time outdoors, visiting Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Lake Eerie, and Brandywine Ski Resort. My positive experience at Case has led me to the decision to earn my PhD, and I look forward to continuing my studies.
