Cody S.



What was your undergraduate degree in?

Molecular and Cellular Biology from Emporia State University.


Why did you decide to pursue an applied biosciences master's degree?

The applied biosciences master's degree program provided me the opportunity to further my understanding of the industry I work in as the scope of my job within the pharmaceutical industry is limited in experiencing the full depth of the drug and vaccine development pipeline. Further, this degree allowed me to improve upon my understanding of clinical research as a business and how the academic research I came to understand during my undergrad plays a part in shaping the future of professional science.


How has the degree contributed to your career?

This degree has made me much more confident in my understanding of clinical research, statistical analysis and project management. It has also given me a better understanding of how to use an interdisciplinary approach to solve problems that arise during a study. Lastly, my electives have made me more effective as a supervisor in understanding how to manage groups and projects.
