Christina Neofytou - Master of Biomedicine student from Greece
I could not think of a better way to pursue my dream of becoming a biomedical researcher than joining the Biomedicine Master’s at Karolinska Institutet.
Christina’s interest in science and medicine spans back as far as she can remember. The opportunity to be mentored by highly acclaimed scientists and work inside such a prestigious research environment meant KI was the top choice for continuing her studies.
Christina credits Karolinska Institutet for going out of their way to ensure all students feel welcome. She loves that the programme has initially focused on bringing everyone to the same level, encouraging her to test her abilities, be creative and gain confidence whilst presenting.
Christina is one of our Instagram ambassadors. You can follow her as she documents fulfilling her dream of being a student here at KI.
Christina sees this master’s as a stepping stone before pursuing a PhD and hopefully a long career in academia. She believes the Master’s in Biomedicine will create a lot of opportunities as it is research-based and very hands-on. Importantly, she wants to have an impact on the world by following KI’s mission “to improve people’s health through research and education”.
