—01 Ongoing Education

Keeping knowledge of the sciences and technologies fresh is a most important factor. To stay current and complete this need for advancement I network often. I also take specific online classes that will fulfill my own personal desire to further my education.
This keeps me current and provides me with cutting edge new knowledge of research and advancements.

Current Studies:

* Genomic Data Science @ John Hopkins

* Galaxy Project – Genomic Science
* 3D Printing – Dissolvable scaffold cartilage tissue for joints
* CrispR Device Certification – 2016

“When the human genome is completely deciphered it will completely change western medicine as a whole. Everything discovered in medicine will need to be reevaluated from scratch. I can’t wait! – April”
