In rather believed that if a person is genuinely

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). I have not only completed my
Bachelor’s degree with full tuition waiver but have also been honored with
several awards for my tremendous academic performance. Now, I yearn to build up
my career as a pharmaceutical scientist and pursuing a Ph.D. degree 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. Every course, whether it is pharmaceutics or pharmacology, is
interlinked with each other which ultimately heeded me toward exploring and
learning more. Since that day, I realized my passion towards my dream and so I
have never seized to offer my best at everything, along with any given platform
that provided me the opportunity to utilize my knowledge in terms of the
pharmaceutical field.

Although I scrutinized all the existing knowledge on the
wide array of pharmaceutical disciplines during my undergraduate days, it was
inadequate to learn a specific focus of my interest with great profundity.
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. I desired to involve in original research that
contributes to the innovation of effective treatment for cancer, lung and
cardiovascular diseases, obesity and many more. Admission to the Ph.D. program
will be not only my approach to be trained in high-end research skills but will
also prepare me to conquer difficult tasks that will come to my research
career. 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 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 and aid in superior healthcare of my country. But if I ever get chance in
someplace else as well, I would willingly take the opening to make a difference
in whichever way I can.

To gather advanced understandings in my preferred research
area, I enrolled in the Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Technology and have
successfully completed my post-graduation from University of Asia Pacific with
CGPA 4.00 out of 4.00. For my graduate thesis work, I investigated 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”. Even though my Master’s degree gave me the research
experience in the pharmacogenomics field, short duration, and fewer curriculum
were insufficient to explore the other focuses of pharmacology which ultimately
heeded me toward chasing a Ph.D. degree.

I want to be a part of the Ph.D. Program in Pharmaceutical
Sciences at North Dakota State University, since it will provide me the lively
intellectual environment and rich facilities for an extensive variety of
research approaches. I am confident that your university will guide me towards
my vision and mission in the same way it leads their thousands of former
students to accomplish their dreams. My highest priority to select North Dakota
State University’s School of Pharmacy as my graduate school because it offers
highly published and cited faculty who conduct world-class research projects.
After going through the faculty directory and their research interests, I
discovered that each research project is propitious whether it is on the identification
of novel targets for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases or human lung
diseases, therefore I am confident to both render and learn a lot from them. I
also realized that the students and faculties are contributing as authors on
high-impact; peer-reviewed publications and I am just as longing to be like
them. I also went through the courses and found a few courses similar to my
M.S. curriculum which makes me all the more confident to excel in my desired
field. After thorough observations of the program, I think that your graduate
program is the best fit for me.

The overall goal of receiving a Ph.D. degree would
excessively aid me in my proficiency, thoughts and innovative ideas as a
research scientist both in the field of academy and industry. I have the
greatest passion for learning and I can prove to be one of the bests if I am
given an opportunity to express my potential.
