Hi rking! Good to see your question 🙂
My biggest career goal is to see malaria eliminated in my life time. I know I won’t be able to do this on my own, lots of scientists will be involved all over the world, but I would be so happy if the research I do could contribute to this goal.
That’s why I am working on a malaria vaccine. Other diseases, like small pox, have been eliminated and having a vaccine was the key to wiping them off the planet.
The next step in achieving my goal is to do a clinical trial, to test my malaria vaccine in people. I plan to do this in the next two years, and it will be exciting to see if my idea for a vaccine works!
Thanks for your question – K
My biggest career goal is to see the two treatments I’ve worked on make it to clinial trials – that is, to test them in patients to see that they are effective in eliminating cancers (breast or prostate, either is fine by me!). I would love to see two new cancer treatments come out of this work. Every new treatment we find get us closer to the dream of being able to cure cancer. And it would mean more and more people will survive cancer and go on with their lives.
