Lynbrook, NY 11563
I am writing to apply for the internship posted. I am currently a senior biochemistry major in a 5 year BS/MS program at Stony Brook University. I have a passion for pharmaceutical related work and would very much enjoy being part of this experience.
As an undergraduate researcher in an organic synthesis lab, I have been exposed to the vast array of techniques available to scientists to probe and better understand our world at the molecular level. My research involving steroid analogues implicated in the treatment of tuberculosis has exposed me to the immense work involved in drug development. Naturally this experience has been able to further build my appreciation for the complexities of biochemical systems, and the potential for science to provide answers to life’s problems. I want to continue building my skills as a pharmaceutical chemist and seek to expand my knowledge in the industry. I pursue this interest with great enthusiasm as I hope to learn new techniques from some of the best in the world.
Outside of lab work I tutor general and organic chemistry on campus and privately. Not only does this work further build my understanding of the theory behind the lab work I do, but it also helps me impart onto others the beauty of chemistry and what it can help do for society. I want to be part of a team that shares these interests and I believe partaking in this experience will provide me with the skills and knowledge to be a better student, teacher, and scientist.
Please feel free to email me or call my cell phone at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time.
