Achieving the dream of your life

All people have the right to fight for their goals, develop and reach their full potential. At a certain stage of life, work, obligations, and children make it difficult to continue developing, especially in the educational field.

This is the case of Jasmine Thomas, who even with a life full of obligations, was not satisfied with being an excellent professional in her area, she decided to go for more and continue training, at the same time that she had a full-time job and a mother to full time.

In this search, Thomas found in AIU the opportunity to go for that Doctorate that he had always dreamed of, finding in this institution the possibility of having accompaniment in each step of the program, with personalized assistance from the tutors, support that allowed him to be received with the title of Doctor of Philosophy in Human Genetics Doctorate.

Achieve goals to help others

During his studies, Thomas worked as Laboratory Manager in the Department of "Pedology" at the University of New York (NYU) and all the accumulated previous experience was in his favor during the program, thanks to the Andragogic model of Atlantic International University.

This model, unlike other universities, with already built programs, allows students to choose their own courses, very significant in the case of Thomas, who had the power to choose topics related to his field of specialty, cancer genetics, Concentration Leukemia and Lymphoma.

Currently backed by a Ph.D. and more than 22 years of experience in the field of cancer genetics, Thomas serves as Manager of the Department of Cancer Genetics at NYU Langone Medical Center; she's working with other scientists to eradicate or, at least, get an effective treatment for this disease that has a great impact on the world population.

According to WHO forecasts, the number of new cancer cases diagnosed each year worldwide will increase by 69% by 2030, giving a total of 21 million people affected. Cancer deaths are also expected to rise by 72% by 2030 to 13 million, up from 7.6 million deaths in 2008, the organization International Agency for Research on Cancer says.

Day by day, Thomas works from the field of Genetics, leaving excellence in each activity she carries out and thus helping to improve the lives of people who suffer from this disease, as well as those of her relatives. Among the many responsibilities and activities Thomas performs at Langone Medical Center are:

  1. Supervision and Development of personnel.
  2. Quality assurance and quality control.
  3. Development of procedures.
  4. Laboratory workflow.
  5. Planning and Budget.
  6. Acquisition of equipment.
  7. Oversee departmental and institutional biohazard, infection control, and safety policies.

Jasmine Thomas is proof of all those anonymous heroes and heroines, who work day after day, tirelessly for their dreams, impacting their communities.
