AAMU Sophomore Delves into Data Analytics
Georgiana Wright is AG's first intern
Acclinate Genetics, a Huntsville firm with a mission to transform the status quote of clinical research, has announced that an Alabama A&M University sophomore, Georgiana Wright, is serving as the company’s first-ever intern.
Georgiana is majoring in computer science with a concentration in data science. She currently participates in Google’s Research Mentorship Program, which nurtures her interests in data analytics and machine learning.
Acclinate will offer Georgiana an opportunity to high flexibility skill sets and the as well as a unique chance to research pharmaceutical mishaps and pharmacogenetics. This will in turn help with her goal to one day begin publishing case studies, which can only add to the staging ground efforts of Acclinate.
“I have always had a desire to impact minority populations and address the health disparity concerns that have always existed,” said Georgiana.
Disparities in health care and clinical research pose a moral and ethical dilemma for society and threaten to restrict efforts to improve the nation’s health, notes Acclinate. In addition, the health and clinical research professions workforce does not reflect the diversity of the nation.
“It makes sense for us to address the lack of diversity in the clinical research and health care workforce pipeline while ensuring that we diversify clinical research at the same time,” said Tiffany Jordan, Acclinate’s director of strategic partnerships.
Meanwhile, Georgiana has already assisted Acclinate in activating the Student Ambassador program, which allows other college students who share the company’s passion to be a part of the solution through various opportunities, which include volunteering, advocating, educational seminars, hosting events and possible internship opportunities. Additional opportunities will evolve through this program.
