Rare and Neglected Diseases

Posted by Laura_Borgenh on 06 Nov 2011 at 20:40 GMT

Dr. Haldar’s Rare and Neglected Diseases course was one of the best classes I took during my undergraduate years. She equipped her students to conduct valuable research, giving us confidence and independence. It truly was a privilege to help with this study while learning about the research process. Not only were we expanding our knowledge and learning valuable skills, but also we knew our coursework could help individuals suffering from this rare disease.

This course has reinforced my desire to pursue a career in healthcare and clinical research. I am currently in graduate school studying global health issues and helping conduct clinical research through my university. I would like to practice medicine one day, and I also hope to be involved in clinical research throughout my career.
