Tell us a bit about yourself!

I am Priyankaa, I was born and raised in Chennai, India. I am a science enthusiast with a zest for cancer research. I hold a Bachelors degree in Biotechnology and recently competed my Masters in Cancer Biology from Imperial College London. I am currently on the lookout for research opportunities in this field.

What inspired you to study Medicine at Imperial?

Inspired by my mother, a general medical practitioner working in the field of oncology, I developed an interest to understand cancer at the molecular level. This course at Imperial College London was a great springboard.

What was your experience like?

I finished my course last September. The experience was brilliant, be it the academic environment, peers or the professors, Imperial scores high. Additionally, living in London was a very memorable experience.

What is your top tip for other applicants?

Brace yourselves for a journey that will make a mark in your career. Just be confident and never lose hope. Always believe that things will work out in unexpected ways (trust me, it does).
