Alexandra Fredrickson went on to get a Master’s of Science in Technical Entrepreneurship and Management specializing in Biomanufacturing and Therapeutic Development from the University of Rochester and graduated in May 2019.
“My GCSP project was ‘Engineering Better Medicines Using Design Thinking.’ GCSP allowed me to view my seemingly random interests as a coherent path through my college career. I was able to combine my interest and passion for the design thinking methodology with my scientific research and academic pursuits. The program provided a different lens to my college experience and pushed me to go outside of my comfort zone. Through GCSP, I was able to create a meaningful network within my University and nationally, as well as develop a narrative to share with graduate schools and prospective employers.”
