What Baylor Chemistry / Biochemistry meant to my stay in the US:

 

"During my stay as a Fulbright Scholar in the CPRIT Synthesis & Drug Lead Discovery Laboratory at Baylor, I met committed graduate students and faculty working tirelessly to keep up with research and teaching activities, while always at the service of one another… at an institution built on Christian principles…..my research was a success due to the impressive departmental facilities....the Department is a wonderful research center and I will always look for opportunities to return whenever possible...."
