In (3.99 out of 4.00). Now, I yearn

In my country, Bangladesh, there is a
stereotypical conception that if a student doesn’t accomplish his undergraduate
degree from a renowned government university, he is incompetent. But I always
begged to differ and rather believed that if a person is genuinely meritorious
and diligent, he will flourish in every aspect of life and this perception is
what transmuted my life. I have completed my Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honors) from
one of the best private universities of Bangladesh, ‘University of Asia
Pacific’ with the highest CGPA (3.99 out of 4.00). Now, I yearn to build up my
career as a pharmaceutical scientist and pursuing a Ph.D. degree in
Pharmaceutical Sciences will be the staircase to my dream.

My aspiration of becoming a researcher inflamed
when I have chosen pharmaceutical sciences as my course of study. Back then I
used to believe that paracetamol is just a medicine that alleviates fever but
never thought it through that it takes a pharmacist so much more- from the
mechanism of COX inhibitors to packaging science- to manufacture a single piece
of tablet. I always crave to explore the wide array of pharmaceutical
disciplines to discover, design and develop new drugs and therapies. Although I
scrutinized all the generalized and existing knowledge of pharmaceutical
disciplines during my undergraduate days, I still felt like I had limited
opportunities that ultimately hindered me from focusing on my interests and
learning more profoundly. Among 74 courses in my undergraduate curriculum,
pharmacology was the first subject that made me realize the worth of studying
pharmacy and what it means to be a pharmaceutical scientist. I sought to study
further to gain comprehensible insight into pharmacology. Recognition of
potential drug targets and novel treatments for diseases that still lack
effectual treatments will be my objective as a researcher. The inspiration and
desire both come from the fact that pharmaceutical jobs in Bangladesh are
generic-industry oriented, which basically means that we neither have any scope
for research that embraces the diverse focuses of pharmacology and molecular
biology nor do we have any pharmaceutical scientist who can guide our
pharmaceutical sector in this research field. After completing my Ph.D. degree,
I will step forward and create a research team where together the students and
the trainees will work toward the superiority healthcare of my country.

On the other hand, I am also eager to know more
about disease-specific studies and human genomes.  Even though ‘Genomics’ was never a part of my
undergraduate syllabus, my passion for learning more pushed me toward buying an
extraordinary book named “Principles of Genetics” by D. Peter Snustad and
Michael J. Simmons. After reading the book, molecular genetics’ contributions
in reference to the long lists of genetical diseases and their treatments are
what fascinated me the most. To gather advanced understandings in my preferred
research area, I took my Master’s thesis on the investigation of the role of
SMAD1 polymorphisms as a genetic modifier of risk for individuals with
Colorectal Cancer as susceptible genotypes in the Bangladeshi population. For
my research, I used different molecular techniques like DNA Extraction and
Quantification, Polymerase Chain Reaction, and Electrophoresis. Now, I am
writing my manuscript for publication in a journal about a high impact factor
like ‘Tumor Biology’. Although the purpose of pursuing a Master’s degree was to
gain depth knowledge and research experience in the field of pharmaceutics and
pharmacogenomics, short duration, and fewer curriculum was insufficient to
explore the other focuses of pharmacology which ultimately heeded me toward
chasing a Ph.D. degree.

It is my greatest desire to be a part of the
Ph.D. Program in Pharmaceutical Sciences at South Dakota State University as it
is a place that will offer me a lively intellectual environment and rich
facilities needed for an extensive variety of research opportunities. The
core research fields they provide perfectly cater to my research interests like
genomics, oncology, neuropharmacology and many more. I am confident that South
Dakota State University will guide me towards my vision and mission in the same
way it leads their thousands of former students to accomplish their dreams.
