i am a young, supremely motivated graduate in the Biomedical field who works with a targeted, analytical approach. self-criticism and evaluation are two central components in my approach, which serve to improve the effectiveness of the processes which are involved in achieving a certain goal. as the co-captain of a football squad, i recognize myself as a person who excels in Communication with other individuals, as well as a person who takes initiative and responsibility whenever necessary.
for me, the most interesting and intriguing aspect of Biomedical research is its Innovation, the process of bringing new products (e.g. Diagnostics, therapies) to the market. therefore, my Career goal is to contribute to this process, by being involved in Clinical research, and be part of the introduction of new medical products, to help people all over the world.
