Hii, my name is Angélica Rosado-Quinones, and I am a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate at the University of Puerto Rico - Medical Sciences Campus. As I plan to graduate in May 2023, I am interested in expanding my skillset in Bioinformatics, Data Science, and database management in infectious disease research. I was delighted to receive an email from BioData Catalyst to explore the increasing potential of this tool! I hope everyone will soon enjoy Thanksgiving break!
