About Noha
As an engineering student at Nebraska I hope to gain skills in both technical and creative aspects of the field, which will serve me well as a future physician and researcher. I chose to apply for the Grand Challenge Scholars Program because of the invaluable guidance I will receive as a student in the department, in addition to the experiences I will retain as a result of the program requirements. I hope to use my time as a GCSP scholar to build the knowledge base necessary to work towards improving the quality of medicine and medical technology. I hope to focus on the engineering of better medicines throughout my time in the GCSP because of my aspirations of finding a career in the medical field based in technological advancement and improving patient experience as a clinical realm.
