Hometown: Porto Alegre, Brazil
Why I chose the University at Buffalo We choose a country where we want to study and the BSMP program organizers evaluate our portfolio to find an appropriate university. UB was the perfect place for me because of the university’s reputation as a leader in life sciences and my interest in biomedical sciences. For me, it was UB. I was not familiar with UB, but I went to the website. There are many researchers. I knew this was going to be a nice place to study.
