      I believe I have made some great contributions to science since I became a scientist. My research involves looking at diversity in viruses that may aid vaccine design strategies. The data I generate is used my drug manufacturing companies to design and develop vaccines. It is also used by health officials and other scientists to understand how infections spread within the country with the aim of developing strategies for control.

      I am glad that my contribution will be helpful.
