Following her year with Prosper, Alejandra is continuing her work as a Senior Research Associate and hopes to get more skills under her belt as a biomedical researcher. In the future, she plans to explore how the natural evolution of the immune system can help treat infectious diseases - with the ultimate goal of using this knowledge to improve human health.
While she is keeping her options open about how to best pursue this goal in the long term, with Prosper’s support she now has a better idea of what those options are. Importantly, Alejandra has taken ownership of her career development, and started to take a more pro-active, forward-planning approach to her professional journey. Prosper’s resources have helped put her in good stead for the job application process, and - with an updated CV and a better appreciation of how to tailor it to specific opportunities - she plans to apply for a broader variety of roles and organisations in the future.
