  1. Hey guys and gals, I've come close to the end of my first year at BCM, passed all my courses and such. However one of the PIs I was considering joining is leaving to Scripps in CA. I have been given the option to transfer programs, but I was wondering if anyone can give me any advice on the program at Scripps, or any opinion on BCM vs Scripps as institutions, programs, environment (supportive vs competitive), cost of living and how far a scripps stipend goes in CA. Any general advice on what its like to transfer and after transferring programs is also appreciated. Thanks!
  2. I am trying to decide between two MS Biostatistics programs and am wondering if anyone can offer insight. 1. Boston University MS Applied Biostatistics. This is a 12 month (full time) program is in a School of Public Health, but incorporates a research component (500 hours total). 2. Northwestern University MS Biostatistics. This is also a 12 month (full time) program in the School of Medicine. My goal is to work as a data analyst in a hospital or university, with specific interests in clinical epidemiology. Although I’m still open to pursuing a PhD (most likely in Epidemiology), I also want a robust quantitative background that would allow me to work after the Masters. Both are similar in that they are more applied biostatistics programs that are flexible if I choose to later on work full or part time during the program. I feel as though Northwestern has a better name/prestige but BU’s main draw is the location in Boston which has so much opportunity in the biomedical sector. However I’m worried that even if I were to choose BU that I would be overshadowed by those with more prestigious degrees or schools in the Boston area. If you have any advice, please help me in my decision. Edit: In terms of program “fit”, I’m attracted to BU because I’ll be closer to my long-term partner who was also accepted to another school in Boston. In terms of research interests, Northwestern has an edge (and less competition for opportunities due to the smaller program).

  5. Hi, I was wondering what people thought about someone picking a research topic (biomedical research field) on a disease that they themselves have or someone close to them has. Is it an additional source of motivation, or is it too much stress/pressure? Are there any ethical issues? Thanks!
  6. Hello, guys! I'm going to apply for MA in Canada (University of British Columbia) and I've got a few questions about it, so maybe smb had similar experience. I've got Russian diploma in Medicine (M.D.) and also it is veryfied in Israel. But I'd like to change my speciality and apply for MA in Science (kinesiology in priority, biology, genetics are also possible). I looked through application requirments and it's said there that I'm able to apply for these programs because I've got a diploma in related field.The problem is that all these programs are connected with researches and I don't have any background in research, just a few weeks of work in clinic. However, I have to find a supervisor before application. The main question is: is it possible to find supervisor without any background? I'm going to join volunteer programs in lab, visit conferences and so on, but I actually don't have appropriate credits, experience and documents. I thought about applying for PhD in Russia and spend there a year or smth for experience and credits, and then apply for MA in Canada, But it would be such a waste of time... So please tell me about your experience in situations like mine, I'd really appreciate that!
  7. Hi all, I'm from Vietnam, is holding a bachelor degree in Computer Science from my local university and want to pursue a research career in Medicine (aging, to be specific) in Europe/USA. I've got a few questions I would really appreciate any input to. First of all, my plan is getting a Biology master degree and then a Medicine PhD. Is that a good path in your opinions? Secondly, I'm preparing to apply to Biology (prefer wet biology to bioinformatics) master programs in Norway, Finland or Germany (I found a lot of free programs in those countries from masterportal.eu), but I lack the documentable biology background. I would retake those courses if only they didn't require too much lab time that I cannot take time off my job to study. Is the GRE in Molecular Biology or certified online courses (edX,...) a good replacement? Other than that, is there anything you think I should put attention to? Any input is much appreciated. Thank you very much.
  8. Hi Guys, It’s so inspiring to hear everyone’s stories. Good luck to everyone! I wanted to introduce myself to see if anyone is making a similar journey, or has any opinions. I’m a 25 year old medical doctor from Australia, and just finished my internship 4 months ago. I’m planning to apply to Masters of Science / professional masters programs this year for 2017 mid-year entry. I’m considering bioinformatics / computational biology, or computational neuroscience, or some field in computer science. Since high school, I’ve done a Bachelor of Science degree (3 years, accelerated into 2) majoring in Biomedical Science, and a post-grad Medical Degree (MBBS) (4 years), both from a University in the top 50-100 globally. I’ve finished my internship and received general registration in Australia. The Dream: I’ve decided I want to become a data scientist and work somewhere in biotech / med-tech / genomics / machine learning. I’m inspired by Google's DeepMind, and their work with Atari games and AlphaGo - designing incredibly sophisticated AI algorithms. I think this heralds an era of disruption by AI of many professional industries that depend on thinking skills. I’m also inspired by Craig Venter’s work creating synthetic genomes for viruses and bacteria (the ‘first synthetic life’) and I’m excited about the promise of using synthetic bacteria to process pollution, create cleaner fuels and sequester carbon. I think the two fields - artificial intelligence and synthetic life, will redefine the human condition within our lifetimes. And I think the key nexus of them is data science. I would love to build a career in this area, and work in tech startups in the bay area in San Francisco. The Reality: I currently have no research experience, minimal stats / data science and minimal computer science understanding (and no tertiary study in the area). My Plan: This year I’m working as a doctor about 30 hours per week and: 1) doing a bunch of courses in coding, machine learning, and data science 2) saving money to pay for the masters 3) get some experience in research in biomedical science I’d love to hear any thoughts on the following: Is a Computer Science MS realistic? I’m more interested in AI than biotech. Would I be a realistic candidate for top CS schools, with no tertiary experience in CS? I had strong marks in high school advanced maths and physics, but I’ve spent 7 years studying and working in biology and med. I can do 10-20 hours per week to up-skill in this area (roughly 6-7 months before applications are due and 16 months before the 2017 class would start) How much scope is there for CS electives in bioinformatics? I figured bioinformatics may be a realistic way to sneak into CS courses (like AI and robotics). Converting GPA: My GPA in science is 6.0 and my medical degree, 5.46 (both out of 7). 6 is a distinction average, and 5 is a credit average. I haven’t been able to work out how my GPA converts to the US though. What schools should I aim for in CS and bioinformatics? My list after limited research looks like this: Stanford UC Berkeley MIT Carnegie Melon Caltech Johns Hopkins Cold Spring Harbour Harvard Georgia Tech Oxford Cambridge Princeton Imperial College London UCLA UCSD Then a bunch of others in the top 50-100 Again, best of luck to everyone! If you’d like to discuss anything further, please reply here or PM me!
  9. Hello all.... I am a non traditional future Student that received my undergraduate degree in 1996. I minored in speech pathology. I have since spent the last 20 years in the music industry as an executive at various labels... Minus a stint in the military.....and graduate school......I am now in my late thirties and seeking a career change. I pretty much know exactly what I want to do. I'm trying to find a way to create a niche for myself within the speech language pathology field. I want to get into a doctoral program that allows me to get my CCC during the process. It is my plan to work with soldiers who have battlefield trauma of the throat. I spent a little time in the military and I saw soldiers with shrapnel in their necks, sliced tracheas, dislodged voice boxes, & a myriad of other battlefield injuries. Since it is too late for me to attend medical school at my age.... because for what I want to do in throat surgery would take at least 12 years... So I was thinking about combining a medical SLP with a doctor of nurse practitioner degree, or maybe a Medical SLP with a physicians assistant degree.... During the research I've been doing, I stumbled across clinical science doctoral programs as well as SLPD.... I definitely want to work as a clinician as opposed to a research doctorate. I'm also looking into a PhD program in molecular bioscience because that then opens me up to being able to study cancer of the throat and specialize in various issues dealing with swallowing disorders or disease affecting the internal mechanism of the throat. My question to you all is.... Am i jumping the gun? As in moving too fast.... Like maybe I should just get A masters in speech pathology and get my Cs first... Or can I go straight into a clinical doctoral program?
