She feels that the field of clinical research is one of the fundamental areas of science in today's modern society and feels privileged to observe changes and potentially discover positive outcomes. This is rewarding in itself. It is humbling to see the work I do manifested in such a positive way in my community. My inspiration comes from knowing our Johns Hopkins participants are making a huge impact on the world.
