Hi everyone! I’m Gemma, I’m a YI Board member and co-chair of the Blog working committee. Today I’m delighted to introduce Francianne Andrade, a PhD candidate from Brazil and a new YI committee member. Here’s what Francianne has to say about the importance of doing research in a developing country:
My name is Francianne and I am a Ph.D. student in Brazil. I am a graduate in Biomedical Sciences. Today I would like to share about my difficulties and the gratifying experience in a research career in a developing country. I am part of the team for molecular diagnosis and study of hematological diseases, specifically identifying genetic abnormalities as part of the characterization of acute leukemias in children.
