Now an incoming senior at Stanford University, our 2019 Loretta Barksdale-McElwain scholarship recipient Edward Tran has been pretty busy since graduating high school.
We recently received an email from Edward. Here’s what he’s been up to, and all we can say is . . . WOW! Keep up the great work Edward!
“I declared Computer Science with a concentration in Biocomputation, and am interested in the intersection between health, medicine, and technology.
I worked as a Software Engineer Intern at Cisco Systems last summer and will be working at Microsoft as a Program Manager Intern this incoming summer. I will also be doing a service-learning, community health study abroad in Oaxaca, Mexico this summer.
Last quarter, I got published in a journal for my work developing an affordable prophylaxis for COVID-19 (https://jogh.org/2022/jogh-12-05009), which was exciting. I am also working developing a small molecule drug for diabetic patients with chronic wounds.
Among other things, I am President of our campus’ research association and Biodesign organization, as well as a peer counselor on campus, where I work closely with admin to develop mental health resources for students.”
