Project Title: Course work in Biochemical Engineering to facilitate future research in Tissue Engineering
My proposed plan of study is to obtain a master's degree in biochemical engineering from the University College London (UCL). My purpose in following this course of study is to supplement my undergraduate education in bioengineering with an augmentative skill set that will allow me to enter the field of regenerative medicine. The knowledge I gain at UCL will facilitate my long-term goal of working in the biotechnology industry as an engineer who facilitates the transfer of tissue engineering research into clinical practices.
