Getting Started as an Ambassador
Pick either one or all the modules that you would like to explore and learn from to enhance your skill set and get industry ready alongside your academic studies.
Training & Research
OmicsLogic provides a complete path to master bioinformatics. As an ambassador, you will have access to all of the training resources on big data analysis, coding in R and Python, as well as computational research. You will also have the chance to become a Research Fellow and get to work on a research project with mentor guidance.
Marketing and Business
Accelerate your career by developing critical business skills and mindset required to succeed in industry. Learn about marketing and business development for higher education, clinical and biotechnology industries. Get to work along side seasoned professionals who will mentor you to find your talent and succeed at achieving and exceeding your goals.
The rapidly growing field of bioinformatics remains unclear and obscure to the majority of life science students as they embark on their research journey. As an ambassador you will have the chance to change that - learn more about bioinformatics and data science to articulate important insights about this field with students and junior researchers.
Success Stories and Journey of our Campus Ambassadors
Name- Rutvi Vaja
College/University- Navrachana University, Vadodara Gujarat- India
Project Outcome- Insilico analysis of Affected Biological Pathways in MS
My journey at Pine Biotech is immense and full of growth. I started as a campus ambassador and gave an interview for a Research fellow. I bagged the scholarship and hence worked on my interest in neuroinformatics. Moreover, later came up with the idea of a student’s club named SCIOMICS, for which I served as the president for almost a year and later as the Vice President. I graduated in Biomedical sciences and research and now will start my specialization in neuroscience.
Name- Subhrajit Barua
College/University- Amity University, Kolkata- India | ITMO University- Russia
Project Outcome- Transcriptomic analysis of DNA damage response in zebrafish embryos under simulated microgravity
A graduate of Amity University in Kolkata, India, Subhrajit has interned (Campus Ambassador) with US-based Pine Biotech (2019-2022), where he worked on bioinformatics as part of liver cancer research and plans to focus his work on multi-omics bioinformatics and applications of AI and ML in biomedical research. Subhrajit Barua completed the Molecular Biology and Biotechnology Masters Program at ITMO University’s International SCAMT Laboratory (Solution Chemistry of Advanced Materials and Technologies). Currently, he is pursuing his Ph.D. from ITMO in the Biotechnology field.
Name- Ojasvi Dutta
College/University- GGDSD College, Panjab University, Chandigarh- India
Project Outcome- Effects of microgravity on HiPSCs(Cardiac and Muscle Activity)
I joined Pine Biotech in May 2021 as a Campus Ambassador and was absorbed as an Intern in June 2021 and I am having a great time working in this company. I started here with little experience but through the great training, I have enhanced my skills in Data Science and Bioinformatics by going through several courses on the OmicsLogic platform (Introduction to Bioinformatics, Python, Transcriptomics, etc.) I have also completed the Research Fellowship program under the mentorship of Mr. Elia Brodsky, Dr. Mohit Mazumder, and Dr. R.L. Narayanan. I am finally placed in this company in Dec 2021 in the position of Web Analytics and Technical Support Coordinator and I am glad to have joined this position.
Name- Vishva Mehta
College/University- VVP Engineering College, Rajkot, Gujarat- India
The main reason for joining the campus ambassador program in December 2020 with Pine Biotech was to learn about different bioinformatics approaches, data science, and computational data analysis tools. By completing self-paced courses on the OmicsLogic platform, I learned about many of these topics and feel like it has been the best learning opportunity for me.
As a growth ambassador, I also got exposed to the marketing world and got a chance to grow my network.
Looking forward to gaining more knowledge and skills on Bioinformatics
Name- Dhruv Mehra
College/University- Amity University, Noida- India| The University of Manchester- United Kingdom
Project Outcome- Transcriptomic Analysis of Histological Subtypes in Esophageal Adenocarcinoma
With a significant background in Genomics and Molecular Diagnostics, I always felt that my Bioinformatics skills were not optimal. To overcome this gap, I joined Pine Biotech as a Research fellow in March 2021 and also a Campus Ambassador. I helped in reaching out to students and participants who are interested in taking programs and courses from OmicsLogic Portal. I have gained insights about NGS data analysis and have acquired constructive skills in analyzing various types of big data like genomics and transcriptomics. I have completed my research project under the guidance of Mr. Elia Brodsky, Dr. Harpreet Kaur, and Dr. Mohit Mazumder. Further to add I am currently doing post-graduation in Precision Medicine from The University of Manchester, which got possible after completing the project here at Pine Biotech.
