Hey! I’m Shaurita D. Hutchins, a student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in their Graduate Biomedical Sciences (GBS) Doctoral Training Program and a member of the Center for Computational Genomics and Data Science (CGDS) under the mentorship of Dr. Elizabeth Worthey.
I’ve always been passionate about healthcare, and that passion has grown into a desire to bridge technology and health outcomes. Bioinformatics can bridge the gap between the genomic level of diseases to the clinical aspect of diseases which ultimately would lead to an improvement in precision medicine. I also desire to create better tools for scientists and consumers to analyze health-related data.
In my spare time, I serve as a developer for a basketball forum, build websites, and analyze NBA data using Python. Additionally, I love exploring nature, studying in parks, gardening, photography, writing poetry and short stories, and cooking.
