Project Name: Drug Discovery: A Chemical Compound Analysis for Fighting Diseases
The project goal is to predict the effectiveness of chemical compounds for treating a disease. This prediction can be used to pre-screen drugs before expensive and time-consuming lab experiments. This is especially important considering that, on average, only 9% drugs get approved by the FDA per year and the cost of bringing a new drug to market is estimated to be $ 2.6 billion, much of which is spent on testing drugs that may have little to no effectivity.
I am a lifelong learner who has the persistence and eagerness to acquire and maintain the skills needed to adapt to the rapidly developing landscape that is Data Science. Possessing an ability to learn quickly and leveraging a fondness of accruing new tools and information, I am confident that I can keep up with the pace that this field demands.
acquiring new tools, strategies, and information to apply in a variety of settings and projects.
Adaptability, persistence, and eagerness.
Continued learning environment.
