  • Personal Statement: “For many years now, I have been working with research in all aspects from basic science to clinical research. My limitation in dealing with many research tasks was the lack in knowledge and skills related to efficiently managing the enormous amount of information gathered during each aspect of research projects. The training program exposed me to a broad biomedical informatics curriculum, encompassing medical information access and retrieval, medical databases, decision support systems, and computational medicine. This training was so far the most valuable contribution to my career development. I truly believe that Informatics for Clinical Research is fundamental to translation of basic research to medically useful interventions.”
